2014 Blue Ribbon School
La Entrada Middle School was named one of the 2014 National Blue Ribbon Schools. Only 337 schools in the United States were recognized with this prestigious award this year, with La Entrada being one of only 25 middle schools being included in this designation.
Founded in 1982, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle, and high schools where students perform at very high levels or where academic achievement has significantly improved. La Entrada has been awarded this recognition once before. Congratulations to our students, teachers and families for their efforts.
La Entrada is an inclusive community of dedicated staff, students, and parents engaged in maximizing the academic, social, ethical and physical growth of every student. Our collaborative community embraces the ideals of critical thinking, life-long learning, and global responsibility in a safe and respectful environment.
