Suva Elementary School is being honored as a 2016 California Gold Ribbon School for boosting student reading comprehension through after-school learning opportunities and new technological tools. The school offers eight-week programs for students who need extra help in honing skills that include use of an online reading program and ways to annotate material.
The Gold Ribbon is California’s highest academic honor.
Suva has the second-largest elementary school population in Montebello Unified. Nearly all students come from socioeconomically disadvantaged homes; more than 50 percent are English learners. The reading program has helped narrow achievement gaps as reading comprehension surges on state tests.
The school’s dedication to preparing students for their future academic success is embodied in its nickname – Suva University.
“Suva Elementary lives by a philosophy of doing our best, never giving up, and making no excuses,” Principal Janice Riddle said. “We will continue to push ourselves to this next degree to ensure our students’ success.”
