The sentence, "Five others -- California, Dublin, Granada, and Livermore -- were awarded silver honors. That looks like only four schools to me. Perhaps because they left off Monte Vista High School? It also received a silver award.

SRVUSD in headline, not SVRUSD. Does anybody edit anymore?

Danville Express in their haste makes many mistakes.

I guess these are writers pressured to make the Dead-Line.

They should really slow down and make sure they have it right.

Hey folks at the DE, try proof reading before sending it to the presses or maybe allow another staff member to proof read it.

Just a thought...Julia Pardini from Alamo

Congratulations San Ramon High! We always knew you were a gold medal winner; but nice to see that you are being recognized nationally as one. Our three sons were very proud to have graduated from such a great school.
