Garden Grove Unified School District was one of 26 school districts to be named a California Honor Roll District and more than 65 percent of the district’s schools were named 2018-2019 California Honor Roll Schools, more than any other school district in Orange County and the highest percentage among comparable districts statewide.
The California Honor Roll program recognizes school districts and schools that are leaders in getting students to grade-level and beyond and demonstrate high achievement in student success, a reduction in achievement gaps, and high college readiness in students.
The 2018-2019 California Honor Roll includes 1,831 high performing schools and is issued by Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business Education Excellence (CBEE), a national coalition of business and education leaders.
The 42 GGUSD schools named to the 2018-2019 California Honor Roll include Allen, Anthony, Brookhurst, Cook, Crosby, Enders, Evans, Excelsior, Faylane, Gilbert, Hazard, Hill, Lawrence, Marshall, Mitchell, Morningside, Murdy, Newhope, Northcutt, Paine, Parkview, Patton, Post, Rosita, Stanford, Stanley, Sunnyside, Warren, Woodbury, Zeyen elementary schools; Alamitos, Irvine, Jordan, Lake, McGarvin, Ralston, and Walton intermediate schools; Bolsa Grande, Garden Grove, La Quinta, Pacifica, and Rancho Alamitos high schools.
“This recognition embodies what the Garden Grove Way represents,” said Bob Harden GGUSD Board of Education trustee. “Our students continue to raise the bar with the help and dedication of parents, staff, and administrators who truly believe in giving our students the tools needed for lifelong success.”
California Honor Roll schools exhibit evidence-based instructional practices, learning objectives aligned to college and career readiness, and data that monitors and proves high achieving student performance, and more.
