Encinal School wins Gold Ribbon award

 

Encinal School in Atherton, a Menlo Park City School District kindergarten- through fifth-grade school, has received a Gold Ribbon award from the California Department of Education.

The Gold Ribbon Schools Award program has replaced the California Distinguished Schools Program while the state adopts new assessment and accountability systems. Elementary schools are honored in even years, while middle and high schools are honored in odd years.

Encinal was the only school in the Almanac's circulation area to win the award, which required schools to describe a model program or practice at their site that benefited unique student populations and could be replicated by others.

The awards were given to 772 schools in the state, and nine in San Mateo County.
