This is the third consecutive year in which San Marino USD has had the highest percentage of students meeting and exceeding standards on the CAASPP, a computer adaptive standardized test administered to all public school students in grades 3-8 and 11.  Before CAASPP, San Marino USD had ranked first among unified school districts for fifteen consecutive years due to its high percentage of students meeting and exceeding state standards as reflected by the Academic Performance Index (API).

 

“This is truly an incredible accomplishment.  Year after year, we are gratified to see that our education strategies and high-caliber teaching result in demonstrated academic success at all levels.  I would like to thank our amazing teachers for leading the way and our outstanding students for their hard work and dedication.  The entire San Marino community should celebrate this success,” said Superintendent Dr. Alex Cherniss.

 

SMUSD Board President Mr. C. Joseph Chang stated, "I would like to congratulate the San Marino Unified School District for once again being ranked number one in the State in English and Math. Consistent achievement is a sign of truly rare greatness.  This success is only possible by hardworking students, incredible parental support and the dedicated teachers and staff.”
