Acacia and Robert C. Fisler Schools have been named 2018 California Distinguished Schools by the California Department of Education. This is the state’s top honor for public schools and is based on a school’s overall achievement or significant improvement in scores. Statewide, 287 schools received the honor, which returned after a three-year hiatus, and replaced the California Gold Ribbon Schools Program.
“We are proud of Acacia and Fisler Schools for receiving this recognition from the State. The accomplishments of the students, staff, and families of our district do an amazing job and deserve this recognition,” said Dr. Robert Pletka, Superintendent of Fullerton School District.
“These schools implement outstanding educational programs and practices that help California students realize their potential, and put them on the path to achieve their dreams,” Torlakson said. “Every day at these schools, teachers, administrators and classified employees, working with parents, apply their dedication, creativity, and talents toward providing a great education for all their students.”
