State Senator Marty Golden honored P.S. 222 (3301 Quentin Road) for its recognition as a 2013 National Blue Ribbon School winner. Brooklyn News is reporting that the school won for “Exemplary High Performing.”

The award is presented by the US Department of Education and was given out to 236 other public schools across the country this year. Officials from P.S. 222, including Principal Theresa Oliveri and former Principal Louise Blake, will be on hand for the ceremony in Washington D.C. in November.

Golden said he was proud to honor the Marine Park school in his remarks.

“It is an honor to represent such an outstanding school and I extend my heartfelt congratulations to the entire Public School 222 community on this honor. ┬áTogether, students, parents, teachers and administrators, have made this great honor possible. ┬áThis is a great day for School District 22 and a great day for Marine Park,” Golden said.

US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan commented on prestigious nature of the award.

“National Blue Ribbon schools represent examples of educational excellence, and their work reflects the belief that every child in America deserves a world-class education,” Duncan said.

Congratulations to P.S. 222 on the impressive honor.

  1. wonderful! so glad sheepsheadbites covered this story for marine park citizens such as myself. whatever happened to

  2. 20 years ago (when you needed to live within a school’s zone to send your kids there) the Daily News rated all the schools and PS 222 was near the top. We moved here, and my kids went there, and it truly was a great school… and still is, apparently! Gratz to them!
