Wrightsville Beach Elementary Earns National Award

Posted by

On Wednesday the U.S. Secretary of Education named Wrightsville Beach Elementary School a 2016 National Blue Ribbon School, recognizing it as one of the best in the nation. There were only 279 public and 50 private schools in the nation to receive the award, with 7 others being awarded in North Carolina.

The award’s criteria mainly focused on the students’ performance, and with the students of Wrightsville Beach Elementary scoring high on their end of the year tests they deservedly won the award. Principal Jackson Norvell credited the support of the WBS Foundation and the PTA for the success of the school. The Secretary of Education will honor recipients in Washington D.C. with a two day awards ceremony in November.
