South Pasadena Middle School Earns California Distinguished School Honor

The California Department of Education (CDE) recently announced that South Pasadena Middle School (SPMS) has been selected for the prestigious 2024 California Distinguished Schools Program.

“This honor recognizes the hard work and dedication of the students, staff, and parents at South Pasadena Middle School,” said Superintendent Geoff Yantz. “SPMS offers outstanding educational opportunities for our students that encourage them to find their passions and excel.”
The CDE uses multiple measures to identify eligible schools based on their performance on the state indicators as specified on the California School Dashboard. Schools were selected by analyzing data reported through the 2023 Dashboard data, with a focus on demonstrating excellence and growth in academic achievement and ensuring a positive school climate.

Congratulations to Principal Cheryl Busick and Assistant Principal Stephen Lewis, and the exceptional teachers, employees, and students at SPMS.

Go, Tiger Cubs!
