St. James was one of five schools in the Diocese to be named a winner of the 2018 National Blue Ribbon Award from the U.S. Department of Education. The National Blue Ribbon award affirms the hard work of educators, families and communities in creating a safe and welcoming school that challenges and educates students.
“It is a very exciting time in the history of St. James, I am proud to be part of our school family,” said Kira Nelsen, a kindergarten teacher and a St. James School alumni. “I have always known that we are a great school, but it’s nice to have that national recognition.”
