Eden named national Blue Ribbon school

GREENFIELD — A local elementary school has been named a national Blue Ribbon school.

Eden Elementary, 8185 N. State Road 9, Greenfield, is one of only seven Indiana schools to be named a recipient of the U.S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon Schools Award.

Created in 1982, the Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle and high schools that are either high performing or have significant improvement in student achievement among disadvantaged students.

In November, the department of education will conduct a reception in the nation’s capital to formally recognize the awarded schools.

For more information about Eden’s achievement, see an upcoming issue of the Daily Reporter.
