US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced Tuesday that Jackson Hole High School is a recipient of the National Blue Ribbon Award. School Superintendent Pam Shea explains a Blue Ribbon Award is for an “Exemplary High Performing High School.” As such, a school can only be considered for this award if students demonstrate growth in mathematics and reading on the state proficiency test for multiple/consecutive years.  For JHHS, Shea says this would be for school years 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012. This places Jackson Hole High School in an elite group of 286 schools nationwide for overall academic excellence.  Jackson Hole High School was previously recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School for the 1986-87 school year and the 1992-93 school year. The National Blue Ribbon Award is a merit based award that recognizes both public and private schools.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
