MacMillan International Academy named 2021 National Blue Ribbon School

MacMillan International Academy for Humanities, Communication and Technology is one of only five schools in Alabama to be named a 2021 National Blue Ribbon School.

The U.S. Department of Education names Blue Ribbon Schools each year as a recognition of academic performance or based on the school's ability to close gaps in achievement among subgroups. This year, 325 schools nationwide received the recognition.

“This year’s cohort of honorees demonstrates what is possible when committed educators and school leaders create vibrant, welcoming, and affirming school cultures where rich teaching and learning can flourish,” U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona said in a statement.
