Recognition for John Sevier Elementary

John Sevier Elementary has been recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. This program recognizes public and private schools based on their overall academic excellence or progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups.

Additionally, we received the designation of Reward School based on our 2021-2022 TCAP testing. This is the highest distinction that a school can earn based on TCAP results.

Thank you students, families, and staff for all of your hard work!
