Palisades Elementary School has been recognized as a Star School and California Honor Roll School over the past two years by the Campaign for Business & Education Excellence (CBEE). Based on an extensive analysis of student data for every public school and district in California, the CBEE recognizes schools for demonstrating consistently high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement over time, and reduction in achievement gaps. The CBEE is the only school recognition program in the state that solely uses student achievement outcomes as their criteria. In addition, the CBEE identifies and recognizes higher performing schools in the state, particularly higher poverty schools that are closing achievement gaps. The CBEE is a leading, unifying voice for California business leaders who are committed to improving public education, closing the achievement gap, and helping to ensure college readiness and success.
