Two Baltimore County high schools were recognized as 2016 Maryland Blue Ribbon Schools.
George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology and Hereford High School were among the six schools recognized with blue ribbon honors.
"We're so proud that two more of our high schools have earned this honor," said BCPS Superintendent S. Dallas Dance. "Blue Ribbon status indicated student achievement in reading and mathematics that is only possible through strong leadership. I want to thank Principal Karen Steele, of Carver Center, and Principal Louis Jira, of Hereford High School, for leading their staff and communities to excellence."
The Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes high performance as well as significant progress in schools.
