Gil Sanchez Elementary has been chosen as one of the two schools to represent New Mexico this year as a National Title I Distinguished School.
The program is a project of the National Title I Association that publicly recognizes schools for their positive educational advances in one of the following three categories: Category 1: Exceptional student performance for two consecutive years Category 2: Closing the achievement gap between student groups Category 3: Excellence in serving special populations of students (e.g., homeless, migrant, English learners, etc.).
Gil Sanchez Elementary was chosen under Category 1: Exceptional student performance for two consecutive years. Because only two schools per state can be selected as a National Title I Distinguished School each year, this award is an especially prestigious honor for the school, staff and students.
Gil Sanchez Elementary students, community and staff will be honored at the next school board meeting on Tuesday, December 10th at 5:00 p.m. Please join us to help celebrate our success.
