Academic Excellence

Guardian Angels School is a 2007 National Blue Ribbon School. The Blue Ribbon award is one of the most prestigious education awards in the country. Schools have to follow a rigorous application process that includes a thorough review of curriculum, staff credentials, educational delivery and methods, as well as test scores and community involvement. While the Blue Ribbon status recognizes a school’s efforts to deliver the highest quality education possible, it also encourages its community of teachers, staff, and students to continue supporting and striving for excellence.
