Representatives from Glendale's Rosemont Junior High School will attend a ceremony hosted by President Reagan next week in Washington, D.C., honoring 212 secondary schools that have earned the U.S. Department of Education's highest award for academic excellence.
Rosemont was selected as an "exemplary school" in a national competition based on test scores, student citizenship and general campus life. It is one of only two schools in Los Angeles County and four junior high schools in the state that earned the award.
The other Los Angeles County school to be recognized in the White House ceremony Tuesday will be the Lindero Canyon Middle School in the Las Virgenes Unified School District.
Reflects on Glendale Schools
"We feel this victory speaks well of all Glendale schools," said Rosemont Principal Marilyn Zimmerman, who will attend the Washington ceremony with Judith White and Dave Nyquist, assistant principals.
