Three Brevard Public Schools were named as prestigious National Blue Ribbon Schools by the U.S. Department of Education.

The recipients of the coveted recognition are: 
Edgewood Junior/Senior High 
Manatee Elementary 
Robert L. Stevenson Elementary

"National Blue Ribbon Schools are active demonstrations of preparing every child for a bright future," U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos said to honorees. "You are visionaries, innovators and leaders."
