Seattle's Loyal Heights Elementary has been named a national Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education — one of just 304 schools in the country to achieve the designation this year.

The award honors public and private elementary, middle and high schools where students achieve at high levels, or where the achievement gap is narrowing. Since 1982, more than 6,500 of America's schools have received this award, according to the Department of Education.

The school will be honored at a conference and awards ceremony Nov. 14 and 15 in Washington, D.C.

The public elementary school in the Loyal Heights neighborhood of Seattle had an enrollment of about 400 students last year, 6.6 percent of whom were on free- and reduced-price lunch. Its students passed state standardized tests in reading, math and writing by 83 to 93 percent.
