Congrats to A.D. Henderson – A National Blue Ribbon School!

Today, we received the exciting news that FAU’s A.D. Henderson University School was named a 2018 National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. The National Blue Ribbon Schools program recognizes primary and secondary schools for academic excellence or for making strides toward closing the achievement gap among students. A.D. Henderson is one of 349 National Blue Ribbon Schools in the U.S., and one of only 12 in Florida.

Since 1968, A.D. Henderson has been a leader in public education, providing a challenging, innovative curriculum for students from diverse backgrounds, including those from underrepresented groups and economically disadvantaged families. Our early college model offered at FAU High gives students the opportunity to graduate from high school while simultaneously earning a bachelor’s degree, making higher education more affordable for families.

A.D. Henderson is working to change education nationwide with its groundbreaking practices, and I am delighted that it received this recognition for academic performance. Congratulations, A.D. Henderson, and Happy 50th Anniversary!
