Our wonderful school has been recognized for its brilliance by the US Dept. of Education! We have been awarded a National Blue Ribbon School Award. Kudos to Rosette and the amazing teachers and staff. Also to the entire school community for doing such a wonderful job of creating and maintaing a successful, thriving school for our children. The Blue Ribbon Schools Program (BRSP) recognizes elementary and secondary schools that are both academically superior and have demonstrated dramatic gains in student achievement, while serving an economically disadvantaged population of students. Schools recognized through the BRSP are national models of excellence for other schools to emulate. All of the 2011 nominees were either previous California Distinguished Schools or California Title I Academic Achieving Award schools.

Peralta was 1 of 21 California schools, and only 1 of 2 Alameda County schools recognized.
