KIRKWOOD, Mo. (KSDK) - There was a big round of applause Tuesday for Keysor Elementary School in Kirkwood.
It's one of nine Missouri schools selected by the U.S. Department of Education as a Blue Ribbon School. The national award honors schools whose students achieve at very high levels or have made big progress in closing achievement gaps.
Also on making the list here in our area are Brentwood High School and Sappington Elementary School in the Lindbergh School District, and Messiah Lutheran School in St. Charles County.
In Illinois, Scott Elementary School on Scott Air Force Base also received the national honor.
