Ten Orange County high schools are among 69 in the state that are semifinalists for the 1987-88 California Distinguished High School Awards, state Supt. of Public Instruction Bill Honig announced in Sacramento.
The finalists will be named in April, Honig said. Semifinalists have been notified that they will now receive a visit from state and local educators who will be compiling information for selection of the finalists.
"I am delighted to recognize these semifinalists as excellent examples of how quality education is being achieved in California schools," Honig said. "They were selected from 120 nominees out of a pool of over 800 senior high schools in the state."
The Orange County high school semifinalists for the state award include Troy, Sunny Hills, and Fullerton high schools, all from the Fullerton Joint Union High School District.
