Every year the California Department of Education designates a group of schools with the California Distinguished Schools status. This year, several 92024 schools, including Capri Elementary School, Flora Vista Elementary School, and Ocean Knoll Elementary School, were recognized as some of the state’s most outstanding public schools by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson. The schools were among 424 public elementary schools statewide that received this honor.

Tom Torlakson presented each school with a 2014 Distinguished School plaque and flag at this year’s 2014 California Distinguished Schools Awards Ceremony.
