Landels makes state list of distinguished schools

Edith Landels Elementary School in Mountain View has earned a spot among the top public schools in California: Landels will receive a "California Distinguished School Award" in June, Mountain View Whisman School District officials announced on Tuesday.

The distinguished elementary school award-winners are selected by the California Department of Education, and selection is based in part on ranking in the state Academic Performance Index and federal Adequate Yearly Progress results. A school's success in narrowing the achievement gap between high-performing and low-performing students is also a factor.

"This award exemplifies the Landels community — a place full of people who care about and look after every child," said Landels principal Carmen Mizell in a press release.

Landels is one of 35 Santa Clara County public schools selected for the award this year.
