Two Union County NC Schools Earn 2013 National Blue Ribbon Schools Award

The U.S. Department of Education has selected two Union County NC public schools to receive the 2013 National Blue Ribbon Schools award.  This annual award is given to public or private schools based on their high levels of academic achievement or student academic improvement.  Shiloh Elementary School and Weddington Middle were among 286 schools across the nation to receive the 2013 award.

National Blue Ribbon Schools are nominated by the top education official in each state.  Once nominated, each school is invited to submit an application for the award.  Participants in the process were limited to 420 schools.  The Union County schools were two of only five North Carolina schools to receive the 2013 award.

Shiloh Elementary and Weddington Middle are both part of Union County Public Schools (UCPS).  UCPS has over 40,000 students in 53 schools. 

Shiloh is a year-round school located in the Indian Trail area.  Shiloh has approximately 600 students in 27 classrooms.  Located in Weddington NC, Weddington Middle has approximately 1000 students.  Both schools were built in the 1990s and have a history of academic achievement.  Weddington Middle was the top traditional North Carolina public school in math and reading scores in 2010.  The school has been a state School of Excellence every year since 1999.  Shiloh is the only UCPS school to be nominated twice for the National Blue Ribbon Schools award.
