California Distinguished Schools

Nine CVESD Schools are among the State’s ‘Distinguished’

Of 45 schools in the Chula Vista Elementary School District, nine were named 2012 California Distinguished Schools. It is the highest number of CVESD honorees in a single year, and second only to the much larger San Diego Unified for tops in San Diego County.

"The schools we are recognizing demonstrate the incredible commitment of California’s teachers, administrators, and school employees to provide a world-class education to every student, in spite of the financial hardships facing our state and our schools," said State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson, in announcing the honorees. "Their dedication is inspiring, and I applaud and admire their passion and persistence."

The Distinguished Schools program identifies and honors schools that have demonstrated educational excellence for all students and progress in narrowing the achievement gap between students of different ethnic and socio-economic groups.

"We’re very proud of the work that’s been done," said Chula Vista Elementary School District Assistant Superintendent John Nelson. "The nine schools recognized as Distinguished Schools represent the work of all of our schools. Their work to close the achievement gap is highly commendable, and we’re very, very proud of each and every one of them."

The CVESD Distinguished schools are:

Chula Vista Hills Elementary
EastLake Elementary
John J. Montgomery Elementary
Lauderbach Elementary
