•    Park Village Elementary (Scholar Elementary)
Along with the above schools, the Poway Unified School District was also named an "Honor Roll Scholar District" as one of California's top-performing school districts.
This is the ninth year that ERP has completed the Honor Roll list, which recognizes top public schools, school districts, and charter schools in California that have outperformed their peers and closed achievement gaps. Results are based on data of student outcomes on the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) from 2019 through 2023. Click here to view the Honor Roll Methodology.
The methodology applies to peer groups of schools and districts so that similar schools and districts are compared to each other. Peer groups for schools were based on public, locally funded charter, and directly funded charter. Peer groups for districts were based on elementary, high school and unified. Schools and districts were further split into two categories:
STAR Schools and Districts: Schools and districts with greater than, or equal to, 33 percent of students designated as socioeconomically disadvantaged (high poverty).
• Scholar Schools and Districts: Schools and districts with fewer than 33 percent of students designated as socioeconomically disadvantaged (low poverty).
The Honor Roll shines a positive light on districts that are driving a culture where students learn the fundamental skills that employers value and look for. We are proud to recognize you as a higher performing district and plan on learning more about your best practices for accelerating student learning in the critical areas of reading, writing and math. 
This effort is part of a national campaign to engage business leaders in recognizing successful schools and educational systems that are preparing students with the fundamental skills needed to be successful in the workforce and in life. The Honor Roll is the only school recognition program based solely on objective student achievement data with the goal being to find and highlight successful districts and encourage collaboration among educators on best practices for raising student achievement.
