Amador Valley High School has earned national distinction as a 2017 National Blue Ribbon School, the U.S. Department of Education announced on September 28, 2017.
Amador Valley High School is one of 342 schools in the nation and one of only 25 schools in California to receive this honor. Amador is the only high school in Alameda County recognized as an exemplary high performing school and one of two schools in the County to be honored as a 2017 National Blue Ribbon School.
“Congratulations to the Amador Valley High School staff, students, and families for being distinguished as a National Blue Ribbon School,” expressed Pleasanton Unified School District Superintendent David Haglund, Ed.D. “This honor is an impressive accomplishment and a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire Amador community.”
The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle and high schools where students achieve very high learning standards or are making notable improvements in closing the achievement gap. This national award affirms the hard work of educators, families and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging and engaging content.
Amador Valley High School has nationally recognized programs and is consistently ranked among the top high schools in the United States.
“We are proud to share this honor with our Amador community,” said Amador Valley High School Principal Michael Williams. “This recognition belongs to the amazing staff, students, and families who contribute to the success and incredible culture of Amador Valley High School each and every day.”
Amador will be honored with other 2017 National Blue Ribbon Schools at a U.S. Department of Education ceremony on November 6-7.
