Kimberlin Nominated for 2015 National Blue Ribbon Honors

The Texas Education Agency recently announced the nomination of 26 Texas public schools for national 2015 Blue Ribbon Schools recognition, Kimberlin Academy for Excellence is one of those schools. Founded in 1982, Blue Ribbon Schools is a U.S. Department of Education program that recognizes public and private elementary, middle and high schools where students perform at very high levels.

All schools nominated for the 2015 honor were selected as exemplary high performing schools as measured by state assessments or nationally normed tests. Each school has an economically disadvantaged population of 25 percent or greater.  Kimberlin Academy was last named a National Blue Ribbon School for the 1998-99 school year and we are excited to be nominated again for this prestigious honor.

Kimberlin Academy and all nominated schools must now complete a rigorous application process through the U.S. Department of Education. Announcements of the national award winners will be made in September 2015. Schools that receive the award are recognized at the Blue Ribbon School conference in Washington, D.C.  

Evidence of Excellence Award

Kimberlin Academy received an Evidence of Excellence award from the Garland ISD Board of Trustees on October 14, 2014. This was awarded in recognition for fostering family-school partnerships and being named a 2014-2016 National PTA School of Excellence. Just 170 campuses nationwide received this honor for showing progress in the arts, cultural exploration and education in health and safety.


Field Trips

Kimberlin Knights take educational and fun field trips throughout the year. Please fill out the Field Trip Permission Form for each field trip. This form can be filled in electronically but must be signed and returned to the homeroom teacher.
