Schools in Carmel Valley and Del Mar among those named California Distinguished Schools

By City News Service

The state Department of Education recently named 35 elementary schools around San Diego County as California Distinguished Schools.

They are among 424 public elementary schools honored statewide for commitment and innovative approaches to improving student academic achievement.

The program focuses on students’ right to an equitable and rigorous education, and recognizes schools that have made progress in narrowing the academic achievement gap.

“I applaud these strong, thriving schools that are making such impressive strides in preparing their students for continued success,’’ said Tom Torlakson, the state’s superintendent of public instruction. “This award is well-deserved by these school communities for their enduring dedication to high standards, hard work, and unwavering support.’’

The locally honored elementary schools are:

•Carmel Del Mar, Del Mar Heights and Ocean Air in the Del Mar Union School District;

•Solana Pacific in the Solana Beach School District.

The Distinguished Schools program alternates between elementary and high schools each year.

Ocean Beach Elementary also received an award for its arts education program, while Del Mar Heights was separately honored for its physical activity and nutrition program.
