Schweitzer School was named a California Gold Ribbon School in 2016. Schweitzer School has won this award due to its excellent academic program and to the collaboration of staff and parents in providing that program. We are especially proud of our personnel, who believe that all of our students will succeed academically and will develop good character with the right kind of support. All of our teachers are considered highly qualified by the State of California, and work very hard to provide a high quality education to our students. Parents, classified staff, and support staff all work together to make sure Schweitzer students read and write daily. On the annual parent survey, 98% of our parents responded that their child is getting a good education at Schweitzer School.

We are all deeply saddened by the horrible tragedy that occurred at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas earlier this week. The safety of our students and staff is our number one priority. I want to let you know what we have done to keep our schools safe and the resources we have available to address the social-emotional well-being of our students, families and staff members.
We are in the process of greatly expanding our Expanded Learning Program options. We have afterschool and summer school programs available for many students this year. For the 2022-23 school year we will have afterschool and summer school options available for all of our students.
We are pleased to announce that our Superintendent, Dr. Frank Donavan, will be honored with the prestigious Tracy Gaffey Award.
