The U.S. Department of Education has named Haldane High School a National Blue Ribbon School, one of 54 public high schools and 251 public schools across the country to be recognized this year for high performance. Haldane Elementary School received the honor in 1987 and the Garrison School in 2010.

In early November, Middle School Principal Julie Sniffen, former Haldane High School principal Brian Alm, teacher Andrea McCue and Superintendent Diana Bowers will travel to Washington, D.C. to accept the award.
