Congratulations Colt Andrews!
What an exciting time for Colt Andrews School!
Just a few facts...Our school is one of 349 schools in the nation and one of three schools from Rhode Island to be recognized as a Blue Ribbon School for 2018. We were the only school in RI that was recognized as an Exemplary Achievement Gap Closing School. That's pretty amazing!! This award is truly a testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone at Colt Andrews!
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 US Department of Education seeks out and celebrates great American schools, schools demonstrating that all students can achieve to high levels. More than 8,500 schools across the country have been presented with this coveted award. The 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 content.
