Blue Ribbon School

In October, Ocean Springs Middle School will receive a plaque and a banner, proclaiming it one of the best schools in the country. The school has won the National Blue Ribbon Award for 2001-2002. It's the only school in Mississippi to receive this education honor.

The award recognizes schools that show a strong commitment to education, leadership, and community involvement.

After receiving the award in October, the school plans to celebrate with a picnic.
