AJH - National Blue Ribbon School!
Congratulations to Principal Ryan Coleman and the Amherst Junior High staff on earning National Blue Ribbon School status from the US Department of Education! National Blue Ribbon Schools demonstrate that they can push all of their students to achieve at high levels. AJH was the ONLY Lorain County school, one of only three Northeast Ohio schools, and one of only fourteen schools in the state recognized this year!

Congratulating the winners, US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said "Your journey has taught you collaboration, intentional instruction, and strong relationships in school and with you community. You represent excellence - in vision, in implementation, and in results - and we want to learn as much as we can from you."  Congratulations Amherst Junior High!  Read the Blue Ribbon article from the Chronicle Telegram for more information and check out the US Department of Education's YouTube Blue Ribbon Announcement video.
