On Tuesday, Mr. Arne Duncan, the Secretary of Education in Washington D.C., announced the Blue Ribbon school winners for the 2015 school year.  We are extremely excited and proud to announce that our school is among the winners! 


At 1:30 p.m. the announcement was made during an all school assembly.  In addition to all students and staff, we were honored to have the following people join us during this momentous occasion:   Archbishop Lucas, Superintendent Mr. Patrick Slattery, Fr. Stillmunks, Fr. Don Shane, Fr. Hans, Board of Education President Mrs. Amy Ellis, and Home and School President, Mrs. Denise Snodgrass.  Following the assembly, students went back to their homerooms where they learned more about the award and viewed a video which highlights our school.  The link to the video is included here:


 This recognition is quite a great honor:


  • Since 1982, the U. S. Department of Education's National Blue Ribbon School's Program has honored America's most successful public and non-public elementary, middle, and high schools.  


  • The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes schools whose students achieve at very high levels in all areas of learning.  


  • In order to qualify to apply, our school had to show documentation that we score in the top 15 percent of schools nationwide for all grade levels tested on standardized tests in the areas of reading and math. 


  • In addition, we provided ten written essays which further spoke of the excellence for which St. Robert Bellarmine School is widely known.  


  • The school will have the privilege of the recognition for five years at which time we can reapply for the award.  


  • Fr. Stillmunks and Mrs. Suiter will attend an awards ceremony in Washington D.C. in November to accept the award on behalf of St. Robert Bellarmine School.

    Attached to this email is the press release that was shared with local media. 

    We are grateful that God has blessed us with dedicated, passionate teachers and a supportive parish which has helped us achieve excellence in all we do.  The members of our school know that with this award comes much responsibility to keep working hard in order to maintain the excellence for which we have achieved. 

    Congratulations to all!
