Baltimore Sun - - AROUND THE REGION -

Thir­teen Mary­land schools, in­clud­ing six pub­lic schools and seven Catholic schools, were des­ig­nated Na­tional Blue Rib­bon Schools this week by the U.S. De­part­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion. The recog­ni­tion is based on the schools’ over­all aca­demic per­for­mance or progress in clos­ing achieve­ment gaps among stu­dent sub­groups, the de­part­ment said in a pre­pared state­ment. Ship­ley’s Choice Ele­men­tary in Anne Arun­del County and Manor Woods Ele­men­tary in Howard County were among the six pub­lic schools rec­og­nized. Mary­land school of­fi­cials said each of the schools has high test scores in read­ing and math and many have sig­nif­i­cant num­bers of eco­nom­i­cally dis­ad­van­taged stu­dents. All six of the pub­lic schools were pre­vi­ously named as Mary­land Blue Rib­bon schools. The other pub­lic schools named are Sunderland Ele­men­tary in Calvert County, Cen­ter­ville Ele­men­tary in Fred­er­ick County, and Ronald McNair Ele­men­tary and Farm­land Ele­men­tary, both in Mont­gomery County. The pri­vate schools are Lit­tle Flower School in Mont­gomery County, Saint John’s Catholic School in Saint Mary’s County, St.
