School is one of three to earn National Blue Ribbon honor
Onalaska High School will be honored today and Tuesday in Washington D.C.
It’s one of just three Wisconsin high schools to earn the 2015 National Blue Ribbon.
Principal Jared Schaffner says the school was chosen for its academic excellence and test scores.
Schaffner says they’re doing well with what’s most important for students after high school from a career readiness and post-secondary education opportunity standpoint.
Schaffner added they’re also doing well with figuring out how to make their students, who are already performing well, do better, along with making classes more relevant for students not doing well.
Social studies teacher Marjorie Anderson, special ed teacher Kevin Lee and vice principal Anne Curtis will represent Onalaska in Washington.
