Maquoketa Valley Middle School has been named a National Blue Ribbon School for 2020.
The Delhi school is among six Iowa schools recognized with the honor. The recognition is based on a school’s overall academic performance or progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups.
The U.S. Department of Education recognizes all National Blue Ribbon Schools in one of two performance categories, based on all student scores, student subgroup scores and graduation rates.
A total of 317 public schools and 50 non-public schools will be honored during the virtual awards ceremony November 12th and 13th.
