Mesa Academy for Advanced Studies Named 2018 National Blue Ribbon School
Mesa Academy For Advanced Studies in Mesa Unified District has been designated an Exemplary High Performing Schools National Blue Ribbon School for 2018 by U. S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. Our school is one of 349 schools in the nation and one of five schools from Arizona to be recognized in 2018.
All schools are honored in one of two performance categories, based on all student scores, subgroup student scores and graduation rates:
- Exemplary High Performing Schools are among their state’s highest performing schools as measured by state assessments or nationally normed tests.
- Exemplary Achievement Gap Closing Schools are among their state’s highest performing schools in closing achievement gaps between a school’s student groups and all students over the past five years.
We are grateful to all students, staff, and parents present and past! And we are thrilled to represent the City of Mesa and the State of Arizona!
