YISD’s Valle Verde Early College High School Wins 2017 National Blue Ribbon School Award

Ysleta ISD’s Valle Verde Early College High School (VVECHS) was honored Thursday morning by the U.S. Department of Education as a National Blue Ribbon School

Students and staff from VVECHS, as well as Superintendent of Schools Dr. Xavier De La Torre, were gathered in the Ysleta ISD Central Office Theater watching a livestream feed from the U.S. Department of Education, announcing that the school had been named a 2017 National Blue Ribbon School.

Upon the announcement, all began cheering and celebrating the national honor.

In January, VVECHS was among only 26 schools in Texas – and three in El Paso – to be nominated for the National Blue Ribbon Schools program. The school then completed a rigorous application process through the U.S. Department of Education.

VVECHS is the 11th YISD school to become a National Blue Ribbon School.

In recent years, the 400-student VVECHS has been recognized as an Apple Distinguished School, a Texas Early College High School Demonstration School, and was listed in 2016 as the top-ranked public high school in the El Paso region by U.S. News & World Report and Newsweek.
