We received some exciting news today! JCIB Middle has been recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education!

As you'll see in the video, parents are also winners of this recognition. It takes parents, students and teachers to form a community of support for our students. This is recognition that our efforts have been worthwhile! - Mrs. Lightsey, Principal

The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program
Recognizing Great American Schools Since 1982

The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private elementary, middle, and high schools based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. Every year the U. S. Department of Education seeks out and celebrates great American schools, schools demonstrating that all students can achieve to high levels. With its 40th cohort of awardees, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program has bestowed more than 10,000 awards to over 9,700 schools, with some schools winning multiple awards. Schools are eligible for nomination after five years. The coveted National Blue Ribbon School award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging and engaging content. The National Blue Ribbon School flag gracing an entry or flying overhead is a widely recognized symbol of exemplary teaching and learning.
