Seton Catholic School has been honored as a 2012 Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, ranking it among the highest achieving schools in the nation. The announcement came from the U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan in September.
Seton was awarded the Blue Ribbon status as an Exemplary High Performing School. "High performing" means that the achievement of Seton’s students in the most recent year tested places them among the highest performing schools in the nation in reading (or English language arts) and mathematics, as measured by a nationally normed test.
“I am so proud of our school and this accomplishment," said Mrs. Lee Coomer, the founding principal of Seton. “Considering we opened a brand new school in 2005, and have developed it into a nationally recognized program is incredible. It speaks to the efforts of our teachers and supportive parents, not to mention an amazing assembly of students.”
Seton will celebrate with an award ceremony at 1 p.m. Dec. 11. Seton is located at 1740 Sumerhill Dr. The community is invited to come and celebrate.
