Byram Hills High School was recognized nationally as a 2020 Blue Ribbon School. This award was based on student achievement and Byram Hills' commitment to education. Byram Hills is one of nine public high schools in New York State to receive this award in the "Exemplary High Performing" category.
The United States Secretary of Education recognized 367 schools as National Blue Ribbon Schools for 2020.
“Congratulations to this year’s National Blue Ribbon School awardees,” said Secretary Betsy DeVos. “It’s a privilege to recognize the extraordinary work you do to meet students’ needs and prepare them for successful careers and meaningful lives."
The coveted National Blue Ribbon Schools award affirms the hard work of educators, families, and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging and engaging content. Now in its 38th year, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program has bestowed almost 10,000 awards to more than 9,000 schools.
“Byram Hills High School is so successful because of the alignment between the expectations of the community, the professionalism of the faculty, and the engagement of the students,” said Byram Hills Principal Mr. Christopher Walsh. “This is a tremendous honor.”
The 2020 National Blue Ribbon Schools Awards Ceremony will be held virtually on November 12th and 13th.
