Prairie Vista Elementary, Saint Pius X Catholic School in Granger named 2015 National Blue Ribbon Schools

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Ten schools in Indiana are being recognized by the U.S. Department of Education for “exemplary work” and innovation.

Gov. Mike Pence announced the 2015 National Blue Ribbon Schools on Thursday, saying they’ve achieved a high level of success.

The winners include Centerton Elementary School in Martinsville, Farmersville Elementary School in Mount Vernon, Murdock Elementary School in Lafayette, South Adams High School in Berne and two schools in Granger, Prairie Vista Elementary School and Saint Pius X Catholic School.

The Department of Education says the program recognizes outstanding public and non-public schools with effective educators.

The 10 Indiana schools are among 285 public and 50 private schools that will be recognized in a ceremony in Washington D.C., next month.
