About Prescott

The U.S. Secretary of education, Margaret Spellings has designated William Prescott elementary School of the Scranton School District as a Blue Ribbon School for the 2007-2008 school year.

William Prescott Elementary School is one of nine public schools in Pennsylvania, and the only school in Northeastern Pennsylvania to receive this prestigious award.  The No Child Left Behind-Blue Ribbon Schools Program  singles out public and private K-12 schools either for their academic superiority or because they have demonstrated significant gains in student achievement.  This award would not be possible if it were not for the students, parents/guardians, and teachers of the Scranton School District working together to achieve academic greatness.
