I am pleased to announce that Glenn C. Marlow Elementary School in Henderson County is one of only 349 schools in the nation chosen as a 2018 National Blue Ribbon School.
This program, run through the U.S. Department of Education, awards outstanding schools. Glenn C. Marlow, one of eight North Carolina Schools selected for this achievement, received the “Exemplary High Performing Schools” award.
The National Blue Ribbon Schools are public and private schools that produce outstanding results for all students, displaying consistent excellence and closing gaps in student achievement. Any school K-12 is eligible for this award, however they must be in the top 15% of all schools in the state on reading and mathematics assessments or a composite index.
