an exemplary high-performing school in the 2016 National
Blue Ribbon School program.

either academically superior in their state or that
demonstrate dramatic gains in student achievement.

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
