It would have been so helpful if you had told the reader where these schools are! "SRV" is not enough information.

Let's not get too excited here. In Redwood City the same award was given because someone filled out the application right. In actuality the middle school pregnancy rate hit the headlines and the school colors were changed to protect the kids from the huge Mexican gang influence! State scores were abysmal. When you dismiss the lower grades earlier in the fall to give the kids a head start from the older ones---nothing to be proud of and get an award.

@DD - just google the school name and it will give you the address.
@Ann - please take your negativity someplace else .. you are so pathetic!

This is excellent news.

Fair point, DD. We've now added the city/town locations next to the school names.

Excellent news? It's a joke. Ann is absolutely on target. Do your research on the "quality" of California schools before you start bragging.
