OKEMOS, Mich (WLNS) – A local school received national recognition today as one of the U.S. Department of Education’s “National Blue Ribbon Schools” program.
The Okemos Public Montessori was chosen for its pioneering, innovative educational practices after being nominated by the State Department of Education.
“They’ve created an unique learning environment at this school,” said Rep. Mike Bishop. “My hat’s off to Okemos Schools for allowing to exist and encouraging it because it’s done nothing but benefit children across the district.”
The Okemos Public Montessori is one of just 329 schools across the country to receive this honor in 2016.
