Tuscaloosa Magnet Schools-Elementary have been recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a 2014 National Blue Ribbon School.

The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and non-public elementary, middle and high schools where students perform at high levels or are making significant gains in academic achievement. TMSE was recognized with an Exemplary High Performing School distinction, which includes schools among Alabama's highest performing schools measured by state assessments or nationally performed test.

TMSE principle Jeanne Burkhalter says being nominated as a Blue Ribbon School is a tremendous honor but actually achieving Blue Ribbon status is like 'winning an Oscar'.

TMSE is among the 7,900 schools across the country that can claim this honor!
