Awards and Honors

Blue Ribbon School of Excellence

Blue Ribbon School of Excellence — During the Academic Year, 1998-1999, Manzano Day School was awarded a Blue Ribbon award granted by the United States Department of Education. This award is recognition of Manzano Day School’s outstanding work as an elementary educational institution. While this recognition is possible for deserving public institutions, Manzano Day School competed with private schools across the country.

After a two-year self study by the Manzano Day School community with a site visit by a national evaluator, Manzano Day School was awarded this recognition during the 1998-1999 round of elementary school competition. This activity of study and competition is an example of Manzano Day School’s striving by faculty/staff to attain excellence.
