NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Six schools in Tennessee have been chosen as 2011 No Child Left Behind-Blue Ribbon Schools.

They are Hume-Fogg High in Nashville, Page High in Williamson County, South Greene High in Greene County, Frazier Elementary in Rhea County, Fairmont Elementary in Johnson City and Morristown West High in Hamblen County.

The schools, announced Tuesday, will receive $2,500 and recognition during a ceremony in Washington, D.C., in November. The award is presented by the U.S. Department of Education and is based on students who attain and maintain high academic goals that work toward closing achievement gaps.
