Santa Fe administrators were joined alongside District leaders to celebrate the school being recognized as a California Distinguished School during the California School Recognition Program Awards Ceremony on Feb. 10.
Honorees who earned a spot on the 2020 Distinguished Schools list gathered at the Disneyland Resort to receive awards for being named a high-achieving school.
"We are so proud of the administrators, staff, teachers and students who made this award possible," Superintendent Dr. Froilan N. Mendoza said. "This is a tremendous honor for Santa Fe and Baldwin Park Unified."
