U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan named Ross High School as one of 335 schools nationwide to receive recognition as a National Blue Ribbon School for 2015.  RHS was selected as an Exemplary High Performing School and slated to receive education's most prestigious award. Exemplary High Performing Schools are among their state's highest performing schools as measured by state assessments or nationally normed tests. Student subgroup performance and high school graduation rates are also at the highest levels. RHS has been consistently ranked at the highest level on the Ohio Department of Education's State Report Card and the school's most recent graduation rate of 98.6% marked four consecutive years that the graduation rate has been above 97%. Principal Brian Martin and teacher Sharon Berlage will participate in a recognition ceremony on Nov. 9 - 10 in Washington, D.C. "This award is a testament not only to the outstanding individuals who work with our children each day, but also to the parents and other community members who support our schools in many ways," stated Ross Superintendent Greg Young. "The Ross School District is blessed to have hard working students, committed staff members, exemplary administrators, and a supportive community."
