Western Center Academy named 2013 California Distinguished School
Western Center Academy has been named a 2013 California Distinguished School by the California Department of Education (CDE) and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson.
The California Distinguished School Program honors exceptional public schools that have demonstrated educational excellence for all students and have made progress in narrowing the achievement gap.
Schools must be invited to apply for the Distinguished School Program, and must meet a variety of eligibility criteria including federal and state accountability measures. Teams of educators review the applications for completeness under the direction of the CDE and, in collaboration with the county superintendents of schools, conduct site visits of those applications approved to move forward.
Principal Paul Bailey learned the news last Thursday afternoon via an email from State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson. Superintendent Torlakson will present Western Center Academy with a 2013 Distinguished School plaque at an awards ceremony in Irvine on May 21, 2013.
"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."
Western Center Academy is a high-performing STEM based public charter middle school located at the Western Science Center in Hemet. They serve 384 students in grades six through eight.
