Middle, K-8 Schools Earn Honors

Six local middle and K-8 schools earned awards from the Long Beach Unified School District this week for significant growth in academic achievement. 

The district’s Office of Middle and K-8 Schools recognized each of the winners at a Board of Education meeting.

The Pyramid Awards, recognizing the cooperative efforts of parents, school staff, the principal and students, went to schools that at least doubled their schoolwide growth target for the state Academic Performance Index; met the federal Adequate Yearly Progress criteria in English, math and API; and met academic growth targets for all subgroups.

This year’s winners are Tincher K-8 Preparatory Academy, Rogers Middle School, Cubberley K-8 School, Hill Classical Middle School, Newcomb K-8 Academy and Stanford Middle School.
