“The Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence process gives schools the opportunity to look at their school through the perspective of students, parents, teachers, support staff and administration in order to create a plan to achieve excellence in school culture and student achievement. The process provides schools with a blueprint to work toward school improvement and recognizes schools for their achievement.”

“The BRSE Assessment served as the perfect blueprint for continuous improvement. I was impressed with the depth of information the assessment team was able to obtain in their time with the school. This information was an integral part of the school improvement process.”

“The BRSE has been an outstanding partner with our school system. The opportunity for us to have a thorough evaluation, be provided a road-map for improvements, and create additional colleagues to network with has been a valuable part of many of our schools’ successes. I highly recommend that every Superintendent take a look at the BRSE process for their schools.”
