Forest Street Community School Named a 2022 Blue Ribbon Beacon School

Forest Street Community School has been named a 2022 Blue Ribbon Beacon School by the Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence (BRSE). The award will be presented during the Blue Ribbon Schools Conference this coming December. An important note, Forest Street Community School is the first ever Blue Ribbon nationally recognized school in this very school district. This honor is beyond GREAT! 

The BRSE Program is a comprehensive school self-assessment experience utilizing the Blueprint for Excellence with guidance and support from Blue Ribbon Recognized School Educators. The program assists all schools, with a special focus on low socioeconomic, culturally diverse, and low performing communities of learning in assessing the quality of their academic and instructional programs and in developing a school-wide action plan to ensure measurable student achievement. 

Join me in congratulating the staff, students, and families of Forest Street Community School on obtaining this prestigious honor. Now this is what I mean when I say we are “Moving into Greatness.” Dr. Fitzhugh
