Joe A. Gonsalves Elementary Honored as National Blue Ribbon School

Los Angeles County Supervisor Knabe today recognized Joe A. Gonsalves Elementary School for being selected as one of five National Blue Ribbon Schools in Los Angeles County in 2012, one of 24 in California and one of only 314 in the entire United States.

The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and non-public elementary, middle and high schools where students perform at very high levels or make significant gains in academic achievement.  The program identifies and shares knowledge about effective school leadership and instructional practices.

“As a resident of the ABC Unified School District, I know how hard the schools work to provide an excellent  academic experience through a supportive learning environment for the students,” said Supervisor Knabe.  “This recognition for Joe A. Gonsalves Elementary shows how the active participation of parents, teachers, staff and the community can lead to success for all children.”
