Thanks to everyone for expressing their excitement and interest in attending our new magnet high school, Ellen Ochoa Prep Academy. We would like to announce that we are guaranteeing entry for the first 100 9th grade students who submit an application. Applications are being reviewed on a "first come-first serve" basis each day. Once 100 9th grade students have been accepted, a lottery may be conducted if necessary, for the remaining applicants. We will be sending out our first wave of acceptance letters this week.

Rivera Elementary has received notification that they are a California Department of Education 2016 Gold Ribbon award recipient.
The Gold Ribbon Award is temporarily replacing the California Distinguished School recognition while the state accountability system is in transition. The Gold Ribbon Award recognizes school’s that have developed a signature practice, which has propelled their work in advancing the new Common Core State Standards. The focus for Rivera Elementary was their work in implementing Accelerated Reader and increasing literacy achievement across grades.
Typically, once an application is received a site validation visit follows. However, given the significant data provided and the many exemplars Rivera Elementary was able to articulate in their application, the California Department of Education has decided a site validation visit was not needed.
Congratulations Mr. Sermeno and the Rivera Elementary team for the continuous efforts and commitment to building a "high expectations for all" school culture and enhancing student learning.
