In 2017, Armijo High School was recognized as a Gold Ribbon High School and there was a lot of hoopla about the accomplishment. (See related story https://the-armijo-signal.com/3828/showcase/armijo-receives-high-honors-at-state-ceremony/).

However, shortly before that honor was announced, Armijo received another nod for its academic excellence, and that one almost went unnoticed. Along with K.I. Jones Elementary and the Public Safety Academy, Armijo was recognized as an Honor Roll School with the designation of Star School.

The Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE) pairs with the Educational Results Partnership (ERP) to identify “higher performing schools in the state, particularly higher poverty schools that are closing achievement gaps and those with a focus on STEM proficiency,” according to their website http://edresults.org/HonorRoll/Star. They made the decision to honor these schools based on student achievement outcomes

“We are so proud to be recognized by leaders in the California business community,” Superintendent Kris Corey told Richard Bammer of the Reporter in a May 2017 article. “Our teachers and administrators work tirelessly to keep the focus on high expectations and student academic achievement… no matter their background.”

Students shared what they believed made Armijo a viable candidate for the recognition. “Probably the IB program they offer,” said Jada Longmire. “I think the diversity of Armijo makes it an Honor Roll School,” said Kayla Chavez.

These are just a couple examples of what made Armijo High School an Honor Roll School and what contributed to the recognition. A designation of this sort is good for the community as well as for the students who attend the school. A banner that acknowledges this accomplishment is on the main entrance of the parking lot.
