Editorial               Blue Ribbon Excellence                               

There are nearly 90,000 public schools in America.

Only 250 were selected as Blue Ribbon schools of excellence by the United States Department of Education.

Forest Avenue Academic Magnet Elementary School is one of them.

It is the only school in Montgomery with that honor and one of only three schools in the entire state of Alabama.

Students here commit to being excellent and we congratulate them for being the best of the best.

Their parents, teachers and principal share the honor as well for helping them achieve.

It is a very diverse student body of nearly 700 that shares the common trait of wanting to excel.

Few students ever miss school.  They can't wait to come and learn.

You can see the joy for learning in their faces.

We can all learn from them.

Montgomery's public schools are improving.  Now we can say we are home to one of the best public schools in the country.
