We are extremely excited, honored, and proud to announce that the U.S. Department of Education has named Orchard Hill Intermediate School a National Blue Ribbon School. The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private elementary, middle, and high schools based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. This coveted award affirms the hard work of educators, families and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging and engaging content.
Orchard Hill is one of only 342 school buildings in the entire United States being recognized for this honor. It is only the 2nd school in Stark County to be recognized over the past six years and only the 11th Stark County school over the entire 35 years that the award has existed.
Congratulations and thank you to EVERY SINGLE staff member, student, and parent who is part of Orchard Hill. This collective team effort truly makes a difference for our students.
