Butler School Logo

Daniel Butler Elementary School is named a 2016 National Blue Ribbon School for being an Exemplary High Performing School, announced on September 28 by U.S. Secretary of Education, John. B. King, Jr. Butler is among 279 public schools receiving this honor nationally along with 50 private schools, and is one of three schools recognized in Massachusetts for this honor. Former Butler Principal, now Chenery Middle School Principal said, “I congratulate all of the Butler teachers, students, and families,” says McAllister. “I cannot think of a community more deserving than them. I am so proud of them.”

Schools are nominated for the award by the state department of education, and are recognized in one of two performance categories; Exemplary High Performing Schools and Exemplary Achievement Gap Closing Schools. Exemplary High Performing schools have a high number of achieving students as measured by state assessments. “This achievement is a testament to the passion, strategic effort, education and teamwork that each person in this community contributes,” says current Butler Principal Danielle Betancourt.

Former Butler Principal Michael McAllister will represent the Butler School at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. on November 7 and 8.
