Saginaw’s Handley Elementary School will be one of 13 Michigan schools honored November 7th by the U.S. Department of Education as Exemplary High Performing National Blue Ribbon Schools for high test scores.
Handley is a “magnet” school attracting students from throughout Saginaw, Midland and Bay Counties as well as an International Baccalaureate School.
It offers a challenging curriculum for kindergarten through 5th grade students.
