Congratulations to Oak Point Elementary in Eden Prairie on receiving the distinction of being named by the United States Department of Education as a National Blue Ribbon School. Oak Point is only one of nine Minnesota schools to receive this distinction, based on their overall academic performance or progress in closing achievement gaps among student groups on assessments.

Every day our educators enter the classroom ready to prepare our students for their promising future. It is an honor for Oak Point to be singled out as one of the best in Minnesota. We take pride in all area schools and thank our educators and staff for their hard work and dedication all year. Congratulations, Oak Point, for receiving this impressive distinction.

The U.S. Department of Education recognized 353 schools nationally.
