Every year a handful of National Blue Ribbon Schools are honored with a school site visit, culminating in a short video that highlights some aspect of the school’s success and Blue Ribbon caliber. On individual school pages, in addition to watching the video, you can access the school’s 2013 application, a video transcript, student demographic information, and contact information. Four 2013 schools are profiled here.
