We are excited to announce that SEES has been recognized as a 2018 California Distinguished School.  This award is given to schools to recognize exceptional gains in implementing academic content and performance standards adopted by the State Board of Education.


Here is a quote from our state superintendent regarding the work that we do:

“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."

We are honored that this is the second time that SEES has received this prestigious award.  We appreciate the continued support from our parents. volunteers and the community.
