• PG Middle School Honored

    Pacific Grove Middle School named a Distinguished School under the 2021 California Distinguished Schools Program. Amid the backdrop of uncertainty and hardship facing all California schools this past year, this recognition is especially remarkable. The only other school in Monterey County to be so recognized is San Benancio Middle School.

    PG Middle School Principal Sean Roach said: Being one of only two schools in Monterey County to receive this award is quite an honor. It is entirely a team effort, our faculty and staff all pulling in the same direction, with our eyes on the same prize! We’re especially proud of reducing the achievement gap and seeing big improvement in our at-promise students! PGMS is Proud!”

    State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond announced that over 100 middle and high schools in the state are being honored under the program.

    The California Department of Education (CDE) identifies and awards eligible schools based on performance and progress on state indicators specified on the California School Dashboard, the state’s accountability and continuous improvement system. Indicators include test scores, suspension rates, and conditions and climate.

    “These schools are great examples of California’s commitment to provide outstanding public education for all students, and their data-driven efforts have helped ensure that their students leave with the tools and skills they need to be successful after graduation,” Thurmond said. “Our thanks go to the entire communities surrounding these schools, including the teachers, administrators, and classified employees as well as the students and their families who, through teamwork, all accomplished this impressive achievement together.”
