Educational Results Partnership Honor Roll logo

Twenty-one schools in the Long Beach Unified School District are listed on the newest Educational Results Partnership Honor Roll list of California’s top-performing schools. 

The annual list is sponsored by the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence and is compiled by the nonprofit Educational Results Partnership (ERP). The Honor Roll recognizes statewide schools that have outperformed in closing achievement gaps, particularly among higher-poverty and historically disadvantaged student populations.

Of the 21 LBUSD schools recognized, 18 earned the “Star School” designation for high performance while serving significant populations of high-poverty students. Those winning schools are Sato Academy of Mathematics and Science; Cubberley K-8 School; Bancroft and Stanford middle schools; and Alvarado, Birney, Bixby, Cleveland, Fremont, Gompers, Holmes, Longfellow, Los Cerritos, MacArthur, Prisk, Riley, Signal Hill and Twain elementary schools.

California Academy of Mathematics and Science, Newcomb Academy and Naples Elementary School earned the “Scholar School” honor for high performance and closing achievement gaps, without significant levels of low-income students.

ERP maintains the nation’s largest database on student achievement and uses the data to identify successful public education systems, practices, programs and policies that are delivering the best results for students. School districts that receive the ERP Honor Roll distinction have demonstrated consistently high levels of academic achievement, improvement in achievement over time and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations. For districts with high schools, the ERP Honor Roll recognition also includes measures of college readiness.

The honor roll is sponsored by numerous businesses and private foundations. This year, the Honor Roll recognized 1,430 of California’s higher-performing schools, approximately 17% of all schools in the state. Learn more at
