ICNS Member - On Wednesday, September 28, U. S. Secretary of Education, John King, made the announcement! Saint Paul Lutheran School, Mount Prospect, IL is designated as an exemplary high-performing school in the 2016 National Blue Ribbon School program.


Every year the U. S. Department of Education seeks out and celebrates great American schools -- schools demonstrating that all students can achieve to high levels. The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private K-12 schools that are either academically superior in their state or that demonstrate dramatic gains in student achievement.  Schools are judged using standards of excellence evidenced by student achievement measures and research-based indicators of school quality. For private schools to be eligible, students in each grade level must perform in the top 15% on standardized tests. Saint Paul is one of 50 private schools to win this award nationally.
