National Blue Ribbon Schools

Winterset Middle School was awarded the National Blue Ribbon Award by the US Department of Education.  361 schools nationwide were given the honor.  Four Iowa schools received the honor for 2019. The application for this honor is due on March 29th, 2019. 

National Blue Ribbon Schools are public and non-public elementary, middle and high schools that are producing outstanding results for all students. They have demonstrated consistent excellence and made progress in closing gaps in student achievement. The National Blue Ribbon Schools recognition program is part of a larger U.S. Department of Education effort to identify and disseminate knowledge about effective school leadership and promising instructional practices. 

WMS was nominated as an Exemplary High Performing School by the Iowa Department of Education! Congratulations to Winterset Middle School -- all the students, staff and parents!
