Kerrville Independent School District is thrilled to announce that Nimitz Elementary has been named a 2014 National Blue Ribbon School by U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan for being an Exemplary High Performing School. Nimitz is one of 337 schools nationwide to receive this award. Only 25 schools out of more than 8,000 in Texas were recognized. 

The U.S. Department of Education will honor these schools at a Recognition Ceremony November 10-11 in Washington D.C. In its 32-year history, theNational Blue Ribbon Schools Program has bestowed this coveted award on just under 7,900 of America’s schools.

“All of the staff and students of Nimitz Elementary are excited and honored to be named a National Blue Ribbon School,” said Wendy Tiemann, Principal. “Nimitz Elementary is an amazing school, and we are honored to be recognized for our success.”

The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle, and high schools where students either achieve very high learning standards or are making notable improvements in closing the achievement gap. The award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging content.

“Being named a Blue Ribbon School is a tremendous honor and accomplishment,” said Dan Troxell, Ph.D., Superintendent. “We are proud of the Nimitz students, staff and administration for being named an elite school for our nation.”
