We are a California Distinguished School.
California Distinguished School awards are given by the California Department of Education to public schools within the state that best represent exemplary and quality educational programs. The designation honors California's most exemplary and inspiring public schools. Schools selected for the Distinguished School Award have demonstrated significant gains in narrowing the achievement gap. Only approximately five percent of all California schools are awarded this honor each year following a rigorous selection process. Eligibility is based on federal and state criteria including the No Child Left Behind program, Academic Performance Index (API), and Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP).
