The U.S. Department of Education has named Mount Washington Elementary School a National Blue Ribbon School.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s office put out a press release praising the school and School CEO Dr. Andres Alonso for the achievement.

“As mayor, and as the parent of a student at Mount Washington, I am proud of the work done every day by the faculty and students. I want to congratulate Principal Sue Torr for her commitment to the students and for making Mount Washington Elementary a superb place for children to learn and grow,” Rawlings-Blake said in the release.
