Blue Ribbon Jewish Day Schools

With the announcement earlier this week that Brauser Maimonides and Solomon Schechter Day School of Raritan Valley are the day-school recipients of the Department of Education’s 2009 Blue Ribbon Schools, I thought I would go back through the archives and compile all the day school winners. Unfortunately, all the schools from 1982-2002 are grouped together, while subsequently public schools are separated from independent schools, making the task much easier.

In other words, I’m going to get back to 1982-2002 in the near future. But for now, here are the Jewish day schools who have received the Blue Ribbon Award since 2003…

School City State Year
The Hebrew Academy Huntingon Beach CA 2003
Fuchs Mizrachi School University Heights OH 2003
The Epstein School Atlanta GA 2004
Yeshiva of North Jersey River Edge NJ 2004
The Agnon School Cleveland OH 2004
Tuscon Hebrew Academy Tuscon AZ 2005
Portland Jewish Academy Portland OR 2005
Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy Overland Park KS 2005
Maimonides Academy / Yeshivat Rambam Baltimore MD 2005
Hebrew Academy of Morris County Randolph NJ 2006
Heschel West Day School Agoura CA 2008
Hillel School Tampa FL 2008
Torah Day School Atlanta GA 2008
Solomon Shechter Day School of Raritan Valley East Brunswick NJ 2009
Brauser Maimonides Fort Lauderdale FL 2009


Next week, I’ll be posting my interviews with the heads of school of SSDS Raritan Valley & Brauser Maimonides.

(I’m pretty sure I didn’t miss anyone, but please let me know if I have so I can fix the list.)
