Graham, a California Distinguished School

California Distinguished SchoolIn 2013 and 2019, Graham was named a California Distinguished School. The designation honors California's most exemplary and inspiring public schools. Schools selected for the Distinguished School Award demonstrate significant gains in narrowing the achievement gap.

Schools are honored for their strong commitment and innovative approaches to improving student academic achievement.

We are incredibly proud of staff, students and community for working together to earn this honor.

 

Graham, a Gold Ribbon School

Gold Ribbon SchoolGraham was one of 193 middle school recipients of the 2015 California Gold Ribbon Schools Award. The award recognizes those middle schools that have made gains in implementing the academic content and performance standards adopted by the state Board of Education. The California Gold Ribbon School Award was created to honor schools in place of the California Distinguished Schools Program, which was placed on hiatus while California worked on creating new assessment and

accountability systems.

Schools applied for the award based on a model program their school has adopted that includes standards-based activities, projects, strategies and practices that can be replicated by other educational agencies.

For the 2014-2015 school term, administrators for every middle school and high school in the state were invited to write about a current practice their school had been working on that was aligned with the district's goals. Graham chose to showcase our work on parent engagement, specifically our work with our Latino families.
