Local Honors

Four schools - Blandford Elementary and Killian Elementary in Rowland Unified and Quail Summit Elementary and Westhoff Elementary in Walnut-Valley Unified - received the the Blue Ribbon Schools distinction today.

California had 27 schools of the 287 schools nationwide to earn this year’s honor. The national Blue Ribbon Schools honor goes to schools that meet either of two criteria -- scoring at a very high level on achievement tests or making significant progress in closing the achievement gap for disadvantaged children.

Basically - these schools have bragging rights for the next year and also one more way to attract new students.
