Rancho Starbuck receives an award for being a High Performing Middle School

The California Golden Bell Award goes to El Portal!

This award promotes and recognizes outstanding programs that support students’ changing needs.  It observes and supports educators who go beyond their daily tasks and invest extra time and energy to make a difference in their students’ education.  The Golden Bell Award is designed to boost confidence in the public school system by concentrating on exemplary programs that have brought success to our schools. 

The Quest Program at El Portal was one of 51 schools out of 240 entries chosen for their outstanding achievement in closing the opportunity gap for their students.  This program provides learners with experiences that reach beyond the traditional school setting.  Many layers of support are responsible for the success of the Quest Program and we are proud of everyone involved!

Congratulations to the El Portal Panthers!!
