Congratulations to Russell Ranch Elementary for being named one of the 2018 California Distinguished Schools by the California Department of Education.

The California Distinguished Schools Program recognizes elementary schools that have made exceptional gains in implementing academic content and performance standards adopted by the State Board of Education.
“I’m very proud of our Russell Ranch students, families and staff (classified and certificated) who, together, earn this incredible distinction and honor. This award helps to highlight our academic gains, excellent teaching, learning and collaborating school wide, in addition to recognizing our positive school climate and behavior interventions, “said Principal Joanie Cunningham.
