BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Frederick Law Olmsted School #64 has received the distinction of being a Blue Ribbon school, awarded nationally for those school excelling in academics.

"It's only one of 300 hundred schools in the whole nation and over 133,000 schools, so this is an honor and we hope to grow more blue ribbon schools across the city," Buffalo Superintendent Kriner Cash said.

The distinction is one that had taken some work from school principal Marquita Bryant.

"Just working with our students to build a mindset that all students succeed and all students can be successful," Bryant said.

This is something the City of Buffalo hopes can expand to other schools in the district.
