Gibraltar Elementary School became just the second in Door County earlier this week to earn National Blue Ribbon status from the United States Department of Education. The Fish Creek school was nominated earlier this year because of its overall academic success and its ability in recent years to close achievement gaps. Gibraltar Area School District Superintendent Tina Van Meer says it is a testament to the students and staff working hard to achieve their goals.
Sevastopol Middle and High School earned National Blue Ribbon honors in 2015. Gibraltar Elementary School will be formally honored during a ceremony in Washington D.C. next month.
