PHES Blue Ribbon Award

Piñon Hills Elementary School has been recognized as a national Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. PHES is one of just three schools in Nevada in 2017 to receive the designation for academic excellence.

The National Blue Ribbon School award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging content.

As an exemplary high performing school, PHES is among Nevada’s highest performing schools as measured by state assessments or nationally normed tests.

More information about the program, as well as a listing of current and past winners can be found at the Department of Education National Blue Ribbon Schools program.

The National Blue Ribbon School flag gracing an entry or flying overhead is a widely recognized symbol of exemplary teaching and learning.
