Students at one Harrisburg high school are celebrating today. Sci-Tech has just been named a National Blue Ribbon School.
The award is given to schools recognized for closing the achievement gap among students and demonstrating that all students can achieve at high levels.
It’s a major milestone for Sci-Tech High and the whole Harrisburg School District.
“Let me tell you, I’m a proud Harrisburg High School alum, and so this is not just an accomplishment for Sci-Tech, this is a great day for Harrisburg School District because all of our students come from the city of Harrisburg,” said Dr. Sieta Achampong, principal of Sci-Tech High School.
Sci-Tech is one of just 19 schools in the state to receive the National Blue Ribbon Award this year.
