St. Anthony of Padua named National Blue Ribbon School
St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School of The Woodlands has been named a Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education.
According to a press release, the announcement came recently from Washington and U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.
The school was among 269 schools nationwide to receive the honor, and was selected because its standardized test score in reading and math placed it in the top 15 percent of schools in the nation, according to the release.
"This is not only an accomplishment for the students and staff in the school today, but for all the staff, students and families that have walked through our halls over the years," said Father Tom Rafferty, school pastor, in the release. "It is everyone's hard work that has brought about this distinguished recognition."
Tuesday, Sept. 11 has been declared "Blue Day," celebrating the school's recognition by Principal Renee B. Nunez.
St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School is located at 7901 Bay Branch Drive in The Woodlands.
