        Kilgour Elementary in Mount Lookout — a high-achieving neighborhood school in the Cincinnati Public Schools district — on Tuesday celebrated being named a national 2000-2001 Blue Ribbon School with a ceremony and the release outside of about 400 balloons.

        The U.S. Department of Education's Blue Ribbon Schools program has celebrated many of America's most successful schools since 1982. Kilgour was the only urban Ohio school among 14 state winners and 264 winners nationwide and was the first Cincinnati Public School in 10 years to receive one of the nation's most prestigious education honors.

        Five Greater Cincinnati schools were named Blue Ribbon Schools for 2000-01. (Two Tristate schools earned the distinction last year.)

        Other Tristate winners: Edwin H. Greene Intermediate School and Maple Dale Elementary, both in Blue Ash, Sycamore Schools; Miamitown Elementary in Miamitown, Southwest Local Schools; St. Pius X Elementary in Edgewood, Covington Diocese. Kilgour also won the award in 1991-92.
