Staples High School has been recognized as a 2013 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the United States Department of Education.
This program recognizes schools in two performance categories. Staples is in the first category defined as "Exemplary High Performing," in which schools are recognized among their state's highest performing schools, as measured by state assessments or national-normed tests. We are proud of the work that our Staples staff does every day with our very bright, hard-working and dedicated students.
