On December 3rd, Eisenhower was honored at the state capitol for receiving the Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Award which is given to schools that demonstrate excellent student growth. On the school performance framework that is used by the state to evaluate schools, these schools “exceed” expectations on the indicator related to longitudinal academic growth over three years.

Ike Eagle Values
: Soaring High!
Competing against other BVSD schools, we were able to reduce our energy costs by the highest percentage. The BVSD Office of Sustainability and the Student Accountability Advisory Committee (SAAC) presented us with $500 to apply towards future green strategies and the SAAC Travelling Trophy. We are proud of the entire community's efforts, especially our students'(and Ike staff Eco-Champion Carrie Blitz), at reducing our energy usage.
