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.
