Stilwell Nominated for National Award
Stilwell Junior High is one of just five Iowa schools and the only junior high in Iowa to be nominated for recognition in the U.S. Department of Education’s National Blue Ribbon Schools Program in 2017. Nominations are made primarily on the basis of student achievement as measured by the Iowa Assessments. For schools nominated for exemplary achievement, students at each tested grade must be in the top 15 percent of schools in reading and mathematics. The U.S. Department of Education will announce the 2017 National Blue Ribbon Schools in September 2017. Congratulations to Stilwell Junior High!
