Howard applauds local school for national recognition
Saints Philip and James School in Exton awarded National Blue Ribbon
MALVERN, Sept. 20 – State Rep. Kristine Howard, D-Chester, is celebrating the Saints Philip and James School in Exton for being recognized as a 2023 National Blue Ribbon School.
“I am especially proud that the Saints Philip and James School has received this recognition,” Howard said. “The hard-working students and teachers all deserve praise for this honor. The fact that a school in the 167th District was worthy of being called one of the best academic schools in the country, it fills me with pride.”
The Saints Philip and James School is one of 13 schools in the commonwealth that was selected as a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. The award is based on each school’s academic performance, or progress made to close the achievement gap among students. This year, 353 schools across the country received this designation.
