2015 National Blue Ribbon School

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan recognized Pembroke Pines-Florida State University Charter Elementary School as a 2015 National Blue Ribbon School.

Pembroke Pines was one of 335 schools recognized with this distinction based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. The 679-student charter school was nominated in the Exemplary High Performing Schools category and is one of Florida’s highest performing schools as measured by state assessments or nationally normed tests.

“This honor recognizes your students’ accomplishments and the hard work and dedication that went into their success,” Duncan said in a video message to the awardees. “Your journey has taught you collaboration, intentional instruction, and strong relationships in school and with your community. You represent excellence—in vision, in implementation, and in results—and we want to learn as much as we can from you.”

The Department will honor all 285 public and 50 private schools at a recognition ceremony on Nov. 9-10 in Washington, D.C., where they will receive an award plaque and a flag as symbols of their accomplishments.
