Garden Grove Unified School District Receives California Exemplary District Award

Garden Grove Unified School District was one of only 22 school districts statewide to receive the honor of being named a California Exemplary District by the California Department of Education. This prestigious award was received with the announcement that eleven Garden Grove Unified schools were also named California Distinguished Schools, a top honor for California’s most influential schools. The schools within the district named as 2018 California Distinguished Schools are Allen, Cook, Evans, Faylane, Murdy, Paine, Patton, Rosita, Stanford, Warren, and Zeyen elementary schools.

The California Exemplary District program takes a comprehensive observation of multiple areas that define a quality education more widely than test scores alone. These areas are positive school culture and climate, student and family engagement, exceptional strides in student achievement, implementation of state academic standards, and access to a broad course of study. Only one district was selected per county for this elite award, truly setting Garden Grove Unified apart from the rest.

The schools recognized as California Distinguished Schools and the district receiving the Exemplary District award shows that not only was criteria on paper met, but the hard work of staff and teachers is making a difference in the lives of students. The school district enjoys playing a key role in the positive sense of community felt within the Garden Grove Unified School District boundaries, and offers more than just a fantastic education. Students attending Garden Grove Unified schools enjoy musicals, decathlons, student councils, fantastic field trips, robotics, coding, athletics, and more.
