Four Burbank schools are among 275 middle and high schools in California that won a Gold Ribbon Award this year, state officials announced this week.
Burbank High School received the honor, as did David Starr Jordan, John Muir and Luther Burbank middle schools.
The program honors schools that are considered exemplary for how they apply state standards and prepare students for 21st-century college and careers.
In all, 477 middle schools and high schools applied for the Gold Ribbon Award this year.
"These Gold Ribbon Awards are another example of the amazing work our employees do on behalf of our students every single day," said Burbank Unified Supt. Matt Hill in a statement. "It is truly [an] honor to work for such an amazing district."
