"Our school has made a collaborative effort to increase the rigor and relevance in our instruction and in the activities we give our students," Tritt principal Karen Frost said in a statement issued by the CCSD. "For the past few years, we have focused on problem solving to help our students learn to think critically and look for different ways to find answers."
The other schools in Cobb that were named on the Blue Ribbon list include Fair Oaks Elementary, the Marietta Center for Advanced Academics and St. Catherine of Siena Catholic in Kennesaw.
The schools will be formally honored in Washington Nov. 18-19.
