Two El Paso ISD Schools among 26 Texas Blue Ribbon Nominees

Two El Paso ISD campuses are among the selective group of 26 Texas schools that have been nominated for the 2017 National Blue Ribbon Award recognizing the top schools in the country.

Dr. Green Elementary School and Maxine Silva Health Magnet High Schools were among the group of exemplary, high performing schools that are vying to compete for the privilege of being named a Blue Ribbon School. Winners will be announced in September.

“It’s an honor to be among the handful of Texas school districts that have schools on the list of nominees,” said Superintendent Juan Cabrera. “The fact that we have two schools on that list is proof positive that the focus on future readiness and innovation in our classrooms is paying off.”

If Green is selected, it would join nine other schools – including Silva – in EPISD that have received a Blue Ribbon since the program’s inception in 1982.

Silva’s nomination gives it the opportunity to win its third Blue Ribbon Award. The school earned the distinction in 2003 and 2011 — the most awards of any school in El Paso County.

Besides Silva, the other EPISD schools with Blue Ribbons are: Crockett Elementary, Schuster Elementary, Hillside Elementary, Coldwell Elementary, Douglass Elementary, Transmountain Early College High, Cielo Vista Elementary and Lamar Elementary.

Nominated schools must now complete a rigorous application process that will be monitored by the U.S. Department of Education. Winners will be recognized during a Blue Ribbon awards ceremony in Washington, D.C.
