Locust Valley School Receives Blue Ribbon Award

Bayville Primary recognized for student performance.

Bayville Primary School, part of the Locust Valley School District, was designated as a Blue Ribbon School recently by the U.S. Department of Education.

The National Blue Ribbon Schools award honors public and private elementary, middle, and high schools where students perform at very high levels or where significant improvements are being made in students' levels of achievement.

The program recognizes schools in one of two performance categories. The first category is "Exemplary High Performing," in which schools are recognized among their state's highest performing schools, as measured by state assessments or nationally-normed tests. The second category is "Exemplary Improving," in which schools that have at least 40 percent of their students from disadvantaged backgrounds demonstrate the most progress in improving student achievement levels as measured by state assessments or nationally-normed tests.

Two hundred thirty six public and fifty private schools were selected this year. Other recipients throughout New York include: 

West Side School, Syosset 
Cherry Lane Elementary, Suffern 
Elsmere Elementary, Delmar 
Harrison Avenue Elementary, Harrison
Kramer Lane Elementary, Plainview 
Leo Bernabi School, Spencerport
