Two San Diego Schools Recognized as 2022 National Blue Ribbon Schools

Congratulations are in order for Westview High School (Poway Unified School District) and Helix High School, which were recently named 2022 National Blue Ribbon Schools.

The award honors public and private elementary, middle, and high schools that close achievement and opportunity gaps and where students achieve high learning standards. California schools represent 29 out of the 297 schools recognized as 2022 National Blue Ribbon Schools.

In announcing the awards, California State Superintendent of Instruction Tony Thurmond said, “As we continue to recover from the pandemic, this award validates the hard work of educators across the state on behalf of our students. Their commitment to meeting the academic, social, and emotional needs of all their students has helped transform the lives of students during extraordinary circumstances.”

Since 1982, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program has honored more than 9,000 schools approximately with 10,000. Public schools are nominated by top education officials in each state, the Department of Defense Education Activity, and the Bureau of Indian Education. Private schools are nominated by the Council for American Private Education.

More information about the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program can be found on the U.S. Department of Education National Blue Ribbon Schools web page.
