To Assure Academic and Personal Success For Each Child

Discovery School Recognized Nationally

Discovery School at Bellwood is one of only six schools in Tennessee and 349 schools nationwide recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a National Blue Ribbon School for 2018.

The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private elementary, middle, and high schools based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups.
“Discovery School is actively moving toward problem-based applied learning as they prepare students for success in college and careers,” says Dr. Linda Gilbert, Director of Murfreesboro City Schools. “We are proud of their achievements and celebrate with them as they receive this well-deserved recognition.”
The coveted National Blue Ribbon Schools award affirms the hard work of educators, families and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging and engaging content.
“Discovery School is blessed with great teachers and great students who work hard daily to achieve excellence,” says Kristina Maddux, Principal. “We are also fortunate to have parents and a school district who support the school and the school’s mission.”
This is the second National Blue Ribbon Award to be presented to Discovery School. Discovery School won its first National Blue Ribbon Award in 2012.
