Latest News


Here is an excerpt that the District sent out!


(CONCORD, CA - September 29, 2106) – Strandwood Elementary School in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District (MDUSD) has been named a National Blue Ribbon School for 2016, one of 329 honorees overall recognized from across the country this year and one of 33 from California. The Pleasant Hill school was honored in the category of “Exemplary High Performing Schools.” 


Strandwood joins three prior Blue Ribbon honorees in MDUSD:  Foothill Middle School in Walnut Creek, Monte Gardens Elementary in Concord, and Walnut Acres Elementary in Walnut Creek.


U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King Jr. announced the award winners Wednesday. The award is based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups.


“National Blue Ribbon Schools are proof that we can prepare every child for college and meaningful careers, King said in a video message to honorees. “Your schools are on the cutting edge, pioneering innovative educational practices—professional learning communities, project-based learning, social and emotional learning, positive behavior systems—making you shining examples for your communities, your state and the nation.”
