Great news!

On January 18, the Rochester Community School District was notified that Brewster Elementary School, Hamlin Elementary School and Adams High School were nominated by the Michigan Department of Education to join the esteemed community of National Blue Ribbon Schools.

Only 13 outstanding public schools were nominated from the State of Michigan for the National Blue Ribbon Schools award.

According to the U.S. Department of Education, “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. Every year the U. S. Department of Education seeks out and celebrates great American schools, schools demonstrating that all students can achieve to high levels. The National Blue Ribbon School award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging content.”

For more information about award criteria and eligibility, please visit the U.S. Department of Education Eligibility and Criteria website.

We are extremely proud of this nomination and will continue to update you throughout the process.

Rochester Adams is the very first high school in the State of Michigan to receive this prestigious nomination since Michigan began participating in the NBRS program.
