State Superintendent Tony Thurmond named a San Diego County middle school among 49 “schools to watch” Wednesday, part of the state’s Taking Center Stage program.
The state also named 16 new schools to the list. Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties tied for the most schools designated with nine each.
The “high-performing model schools demonstrate academic excellence, social equity, and responsiveness to the needs of young adolescents,” according to the California Department of Education.
“These middle schools make a great impact on students, and I want to thank the staff, administrators, teachers and parents at these schools for ensuring all students get the education they need to realize their potential,” Thurmond said. “These schools study and support students’ needs, which helps close achievement gaps and creates a better future for these young students.”
