Congratulations Graham for earning the privilege of being recognized as a California Distinguished School!! Graham is one of 218 public middle and high schools to gain such status for 2013.
Tom Torlakson, state superintendent of public instruction, saluted the honored schools for their strong commitment and innovative approaches to improving student academic achievement. "These schools have gone the extra mile to provide high-quality instruction that puts their students on the right path toward career and college," Torlakson said. "Given the enormous challenges schools have faced in recent years, it is inspiring to see this kind of success in so many schools. Our future depends on meeting the needs of every student no matter where they come from or where they live.
We are incredibly proud of staff, students and community for working together to earn this honor. Thank you everyone!!
