Exemplary or High Performing
Congratulations to South Highlands Elementary Magnet School for being one of three Louisiana schools recognized as "Exemplary High Performing." This award recognizes schools who rank in the top 15% of the state on academic indicators and graduation rates. The other schools include: LSU Laboratory School | Laboratory Schools (Baton Rouge) and St. James Episcopal Day School | Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana (Baton Rouge)
The US Department of Education says:
The National Blue Ribbon School award affirms and validates the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in striving for – and attaining – exemplary achievement.
National Blue Ribbon Schools serve as models of effective school practices for state and district educators and other schools throughout the nation. A National Blue Ribbon School flag gracing a school’s entryway or on a flagpole is a widely recognized symbol of exemplary teaching and learning.
