ONE OF ONLY 23 SCHOOLS IN THE NATION

 

Lincoln Elementary School and Principal George C. Albano were honored by the United States Department of Education in Washington, D.C. with the coveted National 2006 No Child Left Behind Blue Ribbon School of Excellence Award for continuous superior academic achievement The New York Times said that Lincoln "is a school that outperformed some of the elite public schools in the country."  Lincoln's students scored in the top 10 percent of the nation on all state assessments, and is one of the few urban schools to be recognized with the nation's top educational award for achieving academic excellence year after year.

 

Following the 2006 Blue Ribbon School awards ceremony in Washington, D.C., the United States Secretary of Education, Margaret Spellings identified nine schools for a site visit and profile in an effort to share information about highly successful schools with schools throughout the nation.  By providing information on some of the best schools, the Secretary hopes to encourage other schools to provide the same quality of education 2006 NCLB-Blue Ribbon Schools provide for their students. 

 

Lincoln Elementary was one of the nine elite schools visited and studied by RMC Research Corporation, Portsmouth, NH.  Following the visit to Lincoln School the U.S. Department of Education posted on the No Child Left Behind - Blue Ribbon Schools Program website a profile of Lincoln.  As was explained during their visit with Mr. Albano, one of the main purposes of the No Child Left Behind - Blue Ribbon Schools Program is to share information about highly successful schools with schools throughout the nation.  The U.S. Department of Education believes that by providing information on some of the best schools, they can encourage other schools to provide the same quality of education Lincoln provides their students.
