Blue Ribbon 2011

Dear Archimedean Schools Students Parents Employees and Friends

I am happy to announce that our Archimedean Academy and our Archimedean Middle Conservatoryreceived from the US Department of Education the prestigious Blue Ribbon Award for the year 2011. Out of more than 4,000 elementary, middle, high schools, public and private in the State of Florida, ten received the award this year. Two out of these ten schools are ours. Both of our schools received the award in the High-Performance category. The Archimedean Academy was noted as High Performance with more than 40% educationally disadvantaged students and the Archimedean Middle Conservatory was the only middle school from the State of Florida that got the Blue Ribbon Award. This is a proud moment of this wonderful Archimedean Schools Project.

For this achievement, We, the Archimedean Schools Board Members, would like to congratulate our students for their brilliant performance, our Teachers for their unparalleled dedication and talent, our two Principals for their powerful leadership, and the Administration for their devotion to the Mission of the Schools. The Principals, Ms. Susan Simpson and Ms. Vasiliki Moysidis should be commended for their accomplishments as the educational leaders of these two exemplary institutions. Our Archimedean Upper Conservatory will be considered for this award after its fifth year in existence. Congratulations again to the whole Archimedean Community for this success.
