Crockett Elementary School in Brentwood was named by the U.S. Department of Education as a National Blue Ribbon School. It was one of just six Tennessee schools to receive the award.
The Sept. 26 announcement included schools in Williamson County Schools, Metro Nashville Public Schools and Knox County Schools, among others. The Blue Ribbon Schools program recognizes outstanding public and non-public schools that exhibit high-level performance and are closing achievement gaps, according to the U.S. Department of Education.
“I’m so proud of the Crockett community,” WCS Superintendent Jason Golden said in release. “It takes the combined efforts of our students, staff and families to accomplish this kind of success.”
Crockett Elementary is the 11th school in the district to be recognized in this way, according to WCS. The school will also be recognized in a ceremony in Washington, D.C. on Nov. 14-15.
