Ranch Elementary School Shines Bright with A+ School of Excellence® Award

Let's give a round of applause to Ranch Elementary School! They've hit a homerun by snagging the prestigious A+ School of Excellence® Award from the Arizona Educational Foundation (AEF) for the 2023-2024 academic year. This is big news, folks!

Dr. Greg Wyman, Superintendent of the J.O. Combs Unified School District, couldn't contain his excitement, saying, "We're bursting with pride for Ranch Elementary! It's a nod to the incredible dedication and hard work of our staff, and the fantastic things happening on campus every single day."

Now, what's the buzz about this A+ School of Excellence® Award? Well, it's like getting a gold star on steroids. Started back in 1983, this award is all about spotting and celebrating the cream of the crop in Arizona's public schools. It's not just about showing off how awesome Ranch Elementary is (though they're definitely awesome), but also about providing a roadmap for other schools to follow suit.

Kim Graham, CEO of AEF, summed it up perfectly, saying, "This award tells the whole community that Ranch Elementary isn't just any school – it's a top-notch choice for students, staff, and families alike."

Earning this award isn't a walk in the park. Ranch Elementary had to showcase their teaching chops, student success stories, leadership prowess, and community spirit. It's like acing a pop quiz, a final exam, and a talent show all rolled into one!

And guess what? This isn't a one-time deal. Ranch Elementary gets to flaunt their A+ status for a cool four years. Talk about bragging rights!

So, what's next for Ranch Elementary? Well, they'll keep doing what they do best – inspiring young minds, fostering a love for learning, and being an integral part of the San Tan Valley community.
