Six Nebraska schools receive National Blue Ribbon honor

The OPS school board held a special meeting on Tuesday to get an update on remote learning and hear a plan to play fall sports in the spring.

The U.S. Department of Education on Thursday recognized six Nebraska schools, including Creighton Prep and Marian Catholic High School, as National Blue Ribbon Schools.

Also receiving the annual honor were Standing Bear Elementary School in Omaha, Pyrtle Elementary School in Lincoln, David City Elementary School in David City and Concordia Academy in Omaha.

They are among 367 schools in 46 states, the District of Columbia and Department of Defense Education Activity schools in Alabama, North Carolina, Germany and Japan recognized for achievement.

Schools can be honored for overall academic excellence or their progress in closing academic achievement gaps among student subgroups.

All six Nebraska schools were selected based on high performance on state assessments or nationally normed tests.

Omaha-area high schools ranked by 2019 ACT scores, 402-444-1077
