  • Russell Ranch Named 2018 California Distinguished School

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

    Russell Ranch was one of 287 schools in the entire state of California and one of six schools in the Sacramento region chosen for this top honor. 

    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.

    “Russell Ranch works hard to share exemplary practices having a positive impact on student outcomes at a variety of academic levels throughout our school. This recognition helps to validate the valuable work we do on a daily basis," Cunningham said.
