Two schools in Europe were among three Department of Defense Education Activity Schools named 2018 National Blue Ribbon Schools, officials said Monday.

The schools honored were Alconbury Elementary School at RAF Alconbury in England, Patch Elementary School at U.S. Army Garrison Stuttgart in Germany and E.A. White Elementary School at Fort Benning, Ga.

“I am extremely proud of the hard work and dedication to student achievement shown at these three schools in earning National Blue Ribbon Award recognition,” said Thomas M. Brady, DODEA director. “Their efforts exemplify the DODEA mission of excellence in education for every student, every day, everywhere.”

The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle and high schools where students achieve very high learning standards or are making notable improvements in closing the achievement gap, DODEA said.

Education Secretary Betsy Devos will honor the winners next month at a ceremony in Washington. A total of 349 schools were recognized.
