APS magnet high school receives National Blue Ribbon award


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – New Mexico’s only high school to win a National Blue Ribbon Award is celebrating the big accomplishment.

The Early College Academy and Career Enrichment Center was honored for its academic performance. It’s one of 362 schools across the nation to receive the award.

The school focuses on college prep, something that students say sets them apart.

“It’s really nice because it’s comforting to know that I’m going to have something after high school, and I can carry what I learned here and carry it out through the rest of my life, and I really enjoy that it’s a community,” student Bariah-Rose Zamir said.

Ladera Del Norte Elementary and Logan Elementary were the only other New Mexico schools to take home the award.
