Blue Ribbon Schools

I've seen in all the schools that really work clearly one uniform characteristic: Every one of them had high goals and high expectations. --President Clinton

Orange County high schools selected for recognition by the U.S. Department of Education in the Blue Ribbon Schools Program for the 1997-98 school year:

* Corona del Mar High

* Dana Hills High

* Los Alamitos High

* Santa Margarita High

They were judged on student focus and support; school organization and culture; challenging standards and curriculum; active teaching and learning; professional community; leadership and educational vitality; school, family and community partnerships; and indicators of success.
