LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The U.S. Department of Education says seven Kentucky schools have been named National Blue Ribbon Schools for 2021.

Education Secretary Miguel Cardona said Tuesday in a statement that the recognition is based on a school’s academic performance or its progress in closing achievement gaps.

The Kentucky schools included on the list were Anchorage Public School, Saint Henry District High School in Erlanger, Blessed Sacrament Elementary School in Fort Mitchell, Gamaliel Elementary School, Rosa Parks Elementary School in Lexington, Greathouse Shryock Traditional School in Louisville, and Heath Elementary School in West Paducah.

Cardona says the schools found creative ways to teach “in the face of unprecedented circumstances.”
