    California Distinguished School Awards

    The California School Recognition Program was created in 1985 to publicize and reinforce the priorities of the State Board of Education and the State Superintendent of Public Instruction. The program identifies and honors some of the state's most exemplary and inspiring public schools with the California Distinguished School Award. Although participation is voluntary, the award is highly sought after by schools in all areas of the state. State Superintendent of Schools Jack O'Connell says "These schools are the best of the best. They share a vision of excellence and they have brought that vision to life."
