We are extremely proud to announce that Mitchell Road Elementary has received national recognition as a 2022 National Blue Ribbon School by the US Department of Education! ONLY 297 schools in the nation were chosen to receive this award this year. We are the only school in Greenville County Schools to receive this award for 2022.
The US Department of Education recognizes all schools in one of two performance categories, based on all student scores, subgroup student scores and graduation rates:
“I applaud all the honorees for the 2022 National Blue Ribbon Schools Award for creating vibrant, welcoming, and affirming school communities where students can learn, grow, reach their potential, and achieve their dreams,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona. “As our country continues to recover from the pandemic, we know that our future will only be as strong as the education we provide to all of our children. Blue Ribbon Schools have gone above and beyond to keep students healthy and safe while meeting their academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs. These schools show what is possible to make an enduring, positive difference in students’ lives.”
