BHS is officially a National Blue Ribbon School
Bolivar High School was officially named a 2013 National Blue Ribbon School in a press release from the U.S. Department of Education. The school was recognized for "Exemplary High Performance" and was one of 286 schools selected nationwide.

The school learned of its nomination for the award last year from Missouri Commissioner of Education Dr. Chris Nicastro. Eight schools were nominated from Missouri. Nominated schools were invited to submit an application and meet other criteria to qualify for the national recognition.

As a recognized school, BHS will be honored at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. on November 18-19. Founded in 1982, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private elementary, middle, and high schools where students perform at very high levels or where significant improvements are being made in students' academic achievement. A National Blue Ribbon Schools flag overhead has become a mark of excellence in education recognized by everyone from parents to policy-makers in thousands of communities. Since the program's founding, the U. S. Department of Education has bestowed this coveted award on more than 7,000 of America's schools.



Bolivar HS named 5-Star Leadership School

BHS has been named a 5-Star Leadership School by MSHSAA, the highest honor a school can receive from the state organization for leadership in the values of participation, sportsmanship, team play, excellence, citizenship, and community.

Only 20 schools in Missouri qualified for the honor this year. To meet the qualifications, there were a number of extra activities. For example, Bolivar coaches participated in the Champions of Character training, and coaches and student-athletes attended the state sportsmanship summit in August.

We are so proud of our student-athletes, parents, and coaches who helped our school community receive this distinction!



BHS honored as 2013 Gold Star School
Eight high-achieving public schools were named Gold Star Schools by Missouri education officials today.

The Gold Star Schools program is designed to identify schools that are performing at a high level academically or who are making exceptional progress while serving a significant proportion of disadvantaged students.

The 2013 recipients are:

    • Bolivar High School, Bolivar R-I School District
    • Brentwood High School, Brentwood School District
    • Lee's Summit West High School, Lee's Summit R-VII School District
    • Nixa High School, Nixa R-II School District
    • Sappington Elementary School, Lindbergh Schools, St. Louis
    • Spokane High School, Spokane R-VII School District, Highlandville
    • Willow Springs High School, Willow Springs R-IV School District
    • W.W. Keysor Elementary School, Kirkwood R-VII School District
 

“Congratulations to these schools on preparing students for college and career,” said Commissioner of Education Chris L. Nicastro. “College- and career-readiness is fundamental for today’s students and lays the foundation for lifelong success.”

College- and career-readiness is a primary goal for the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education's Top 10 by 20 initiative, which calls for education in Missouri to rank in the top 10 nationwide by 2020.

The Gold Star Schools program was established by the Department in 1991 and aligns with the national Blue Ribbon Schools program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education. Recipients of the state’s award were nominated for national Blue Ribbon recognition. Blue Ribbon Schools will be announced this fall by the U.S. Department of Education.
