Middle School in

[[Page E1517]]

Jamesville, North Carolina for being honored by the U.S. Department of 
Education as a 2012 National Blue Ribbon School.
  Since 1982, the Department of Education has recognized elementary, 
middle, and high schools whose students excelled or showed significant 
academic improvement on state or national assessments with the National 
Blue Ribbon School designation. This year, Jamesville Middle School is 
being recognized, along with 268 other schools nationwide, for its 
academic performance.
  During the last two school years, students from Jamesville Middle 
School demonstrated academic excellence--earning performance composites 
of 91 and 93 percent on the North Carolina End-of-Grade Tests. These 
scores have distinguished Jamesville Middle School as one of the top 
five schools within a six county region in eastern North Carolina. As a 
result, the North Carolina State Board of Education and the North 
Carolina Department of Public Instruction named Jamesville Middle 
School an Honor School of Excellence two years in a row.
  Mr. Speaker, I commend the students, faculty, and parents of 
Jamesville Middle School for their commitment to academic excellence. 
Quality primary and secondary education are essential for academic 
success and lifelong achievement. The Blue Ribbon School designation is 
a great testament to the Jamesville community's commitment to prepare 
their children for the future.
  Mr. Speaker, I ask my colleagues to join me in honoring and 
celebrating Jamesville Middle School's recognition as a 2012 National 
Blue Ribbon school.
