National Blue Ribbon Award Press Release (2019)


We are pleased to announce that Tioga High School is a recipient of the 2019 National Blue Ribbon by the U.S. Department of Education. This award is a recognition of the amazing efforts by our dedicated team of educators and staff in PreK through Grade 12!   

Tioga HS has been selected as an Exemplary High Performing School. Exemplary High Performing Schools are among their state’s highest performing schools as measured by state assessments or nationally normed tests.  Only 362 schools nation-wide were recognized and Tioga is one of only nineteen schools in NY to earn this distinction for 2019.  

The Department of Education states that the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program award “recognizes public and private elementary, middle, and high schools where students either achieve very high learning standards or are making notable improvements in closing the achievement gap. Since 1982, the U. S. Department of Education has sought out and celebrated great American schools. The National Blue Ribbon School award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging content.”

A delegation of educators from Tioga will attend the awards ceremony this November in Washington D.C.  For more information, visit the U.S. Department of Education website here.
