White Heath School has been named a 2014 National Blue Ribbon School. The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program is an important part of the US Department of Education's efforts to seek, identify, replicate, and scale up education practices that work. Secretary Arne Duncan praised the National Blue Ribbon Schools as “a national treasure,” and challenged them to share their knowledge with peers in other schools and districts, “to become engines of educational innovation, galvanizing others to transform their schools as well.”
White Heath School is the only downstate public school on the list that includes 13 public schools and 8 private schools in Illinois and one of only 198 public elementary schools in the entire US to be named to the list.
Very proud of the current and past faculty, staff, students, parents, and administration of White Heath School!
