Lipscomb Elementary School

Lipscomb Elementary School in Brentwood was named a 2020 National Blue Ribbon School.

Lipscomb Elementary School has been named a National Blue Ribbon School for 2020, the U.S. Department of Education announced on Thursday.

The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private elementary, middle and high schools based on either high performance or progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. The program sets a standard of excellence for all schools aiming for the highest level of achievement.

"This is an incredible achievement for Lipscomb Elementary," WCS Superintendent Jason Golden said. "I can remember when one of the schools I attended received a National Blue Ribbon Award over three decades ago. This will be a tremendous source of pride for the Lipscomb community that will stay with them forever."

Principal Michelle Contich calls the award a total team effort.

"We are so proud of our staff and our students," she said. "The entire Lipscomb community helped us earn this prestigious honor. We look forward to celebrating this award together."

The school will be recognized during a virtual awards ceremony Nov. 12 and 13. This is the 13th time a school in the Williamson County Schools district has been named a National Blue Ribbon School, joining Grassland Middle in 2004; Brentwood Middle in 2006; Page High in 2011; Hillsboro, Kenrose and Trinity in 2014; Clovercroft and Ravenwood in 2015; Brentwood Middle and Walnut Grove in 2016; Scales Elementary in 2018; and Crockett Elementary in 2019.
