Dinniman Congratulates St. Patrick School on Being Named a National Blue Ribbon School

MALVERN, PA — State Senator Andy Dinniman, minority chair of the Senate Education Committee, is recognizing St. Patrick School in Malvern on being named a National Blue Ribbon School.

The school also received the designation in 2013.

“It is an honor to be recognized as National Blue Ribbon School and I congratulate the students, staff, and faculty at St. Patrick School in Malvern on this achievement,” Dinniman said.

St. Patrick School was one of 14 schools throughout Pennsylvania (and three archdiocesan elementary schools) to receive the recognition. This year, 362 schools across the country received the designation.

The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private elementary, middle, and high schools based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups.
