Neil Armstrong Elementary School in the Pomona Unified School District has been selected as one of 35 California nominees in the National Elementary School Recognition Program.
Last year, the school was one of 250 statewide selected as a California Distinguished Elementary School by the state Department of Education.
Neil Armstrong school is one of five in Los Angeles County selected for the national honor, and the only one in the San Gabriel Valley.
The national winners will be announced by Secretary of Education Lauro F. Cavazos beginning May 9. Representatives from those schools will be invited to Washington for a recognition ceremony in September.
