Mesa Academy Nominated as Exemplary High Performing School
Mesa Academy For Advanced Studies has been nominated by the State of Arizona as one of five schools to join the esteemed community of National Blue Ribbon Schools.
National Blue Ribbon Schools are public and non-public elementary, middle, and high schools that are producing outstanding results for all students. They have demonstrated consistent excellence, and made progress in closing gaps in student achievement. The National Blue Ribbon Schools recognition program is part of a larger U.S. Department of Education effort to identify and disseminate knowledge about effective school leadership and promising instructional practices.
Since its inception in 1982, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program has recognized more than 8,000 Great American Schools. Each year, representatives of newly recognized schools gather for a ceremony in Washington, DC where their achievement is officially honored by the U.S. Department of Education, and offers recipients new opportunities to share their hard-won knowledge in districts, states and beyond.
