The Maryland State Department of Education recently named New Market Elementary a Blue Ribbon School –one of only six in Maryland!!

NMES met the state’s criteria as a school that has demonstrated high achievement over a five-year period and ranks in the state’s top 10% on Maryland assessments in reading and math.

On top of recognition as a highly effective school in Maryland and the nation, NMES will receive substantial gifts and prizes as a Maryland Blue Ribbon School. According to the MDSE web site, Smart Technologies donates a “technology classroom” valued at over $13,000 to each school, and the prestige from the award often results in increased values in neighborhood housing.

NMES will receive a Governor’s Proclamation, State Department of Education citation, Maryland Blue Ribbon Flag of Excellence and General Assembly honors following a dinner in Annapolis.

Congratulations to Principal Cindy Alvarado, the dedicated teachers and staff, parents, and students of New Market Elementary.
