Blen Munoz, Staff Writer

Gilbert High School is the only high school in the entire state of California with the distinction of being named the recipient of the 2023 Civic Learning Award of Excellence. Many schools applied for this recognition, but only one high school earned the top honor. Dale was recognized as the top junior high school recognized for excellence. That makes two AUHSD schools in the county and state!

This award recognizes schools that demonstrate schoolwide achievements in civics. The award is co-sponsored by California Chief Justice Patricia Guerrero and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond. Chief Justice Patricia Guerrero announced the honors from her chambers in honor of Law Day, which is recognized on May 1st.
