For the second consecutive year, Hoover’s Prince of Peace Catholic School received the prestigious Blue Ribbon Lighthouse School of Excellence Award. Only seven other southeastern United States schools have received back-to-back Blue Ribbon awards. Criteria for the award included a survey of the school’s stakeholders (parents, students, faculty, staff and administrators) which showed resounding support for the school’s initiatives and programs. Other categories of criteria that the school successfully met were: focus and support; school organization and culture; challenging standards and curriculum; active teaching and learning; technology integration; professional community; leadership and educational vitality; school, family and community partnerships; and indicators of success.†
