The schools recognized by the New Hampshire Excellence in Education Awards Board are the Pleasant Street School in Laconia; the Deerfield Community School; the David R. Cawley Middle School in Hooksett; and Winnacunnett High School in Hampton.

Selection committees composed of experienced New Hampshire educators and community leaders assess schools through written applications, presentations, and on-site visits.

They will be recognized at an awards ceremony on June 10.
