The list of 2016 National Blue Ribbon schools was released in late September, and among the award-winners are three Dallas ISD schools. Two of the schools, which happen to be on the same campus, celebrated the honor by ending the school day on Friday, Oct. 7, with a high-energy pep rally.
The Dealey Montessori Vanguard and the Dealey International Academy both earned Blue Ribbons this year. The Dealey campus previously earned a National Blue Ribbon. Students from both campuses, which serve elementary students in the Montessori school and middle school students in the International Academy, came together for the party.
Also on this year’s list of winners is Dallas ISD’s School of Health Professions at Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Center.
