Cobbles Elementary Named National Blue Ribbon School

Cobbles Elementary School in the Penfield Central School District has been named a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. Cobbles is one of 289 schools being recognized for overall academic excellence.

“We are proud to be recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School,” said Principal Don Bavis.  “This honor acknowledges the hard working teams at Cobbles, as well as the collaborative partnerships shared between the Cobbles’ faculty, staff, students, parents, district and the greater Penfield community.”

Cobbles is being recognized as an Exemplary High Performing School. Exemplary High Performing Schools are among their state’s highest performing schools as measured by state assessments or nationally normed tests. Student subgroup performance and high school graduation rates are also at the highest levels.

“National Blue Ribbon Schools are models of consistent excellence and a resource for other schools and districts. We celebrate them for their tireless effort and boundless creativity in reaching and teaching every student,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan in making the announcement.

Honorees were recognized at a ceremony in Washington, DC and will serve as models for other schools throughout the nation.
