Nelson School is one of three schools in New Hampshire that have been named Blue Ribbon Schools.

The Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private K-12 schools that are either academically superior in their states or that demonstrate dramatic gains in student achievement.

First, it recognizes schools that have at least 40 percent of their students from disadvantaged backgrounds that dramatically improve student performance to a high level on state assessments or assessments referenced against national norms at a particular grade, as determined by the Chief State School Officer (CSSO).

Second, it recognizes schools whose students, whether from disadvantaged or privileged backgrounds, achieve in the top 10 percent on state tests or the top 10 percent in the state on assessments referenced against national norms at a particular grade”.

Yesterday the NH State Board of Education recognized the achievements of Nelson School and two other schools in NH at their regular board meeting. Present were Wayne Woolrich, co-superintendent of schools from SAU 29, Sheila Vara, principal of Nelson School, and Nelson School Board member Allison Aldrich.

We are right to be very proud of our students and staff at the Nelson school!
