HMSA Earns National Blue Ribbon Award

U.S. Secretary of Education, John B. King, Jr., designated Hawthorne Math and Science Academy (HMSA) as a 2016 National Blue Ribbon School.

HMSA is one of four California high schools that received this honor, and is one among 279 public and 50 private schools named across the nation.   HMSA is also one of a select few that can boast being a two-time recipient of this prestigious award.  Previously, HMSA was recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School in 2010.

Schools are nominated for the award by the state department of education, and then complete a comprehensive application about school practices. HMSA was recognized as being “Exemplary High Performing” among the top schools in a state.

HMSA will be honored at a two-day awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. to celebrate this great achievement.
