Vintage High School and New Technology High School were named 2024 California Distinguished Schools, two of 293 schools recognized in California. These schools are recognized specifically for closing the achievement gap and demonstrating exceptional student performance. 

"It’s an honor to be recognized as a California Distinguished School," said Vintage High School Principal Jessica Hutchinson. "I am so proud of our students for their hard work and success. I'm also very grateful to work with an amazing staff whose daily work and efforts make our school a place where students are supported and succeed. A recognition like this is affirming of the good work that happens at Vintage High School every day."

"This is a community award that results from strong collaboration between New Technology staff, students, and all our stakeholders," shared New Technology High School Principal Abhinav Dev. "It is with a grateful heart that I thank all those currently involved at New Technology High School and all those before us who set the stage for this recognition!"

"The dedication of our staff, families, and students is evidenced in this recognition of excellence at Vintage and New Technology High Schools," said NVUSD Superintendent Dr. Rosanna Mucetti. "We are incredibly thankful for our staff. They show up each day to educate our students while cultivating a culture of high expectations and high support. We remain committed to instilling a love of learning in each of our students and in preparing them to succeed in school and beyond."

According to the California Department of Education's press release, "Schools were selected by analyzing data reported through the 2023 Dashboard, with a focus on demonstrating excellence and growth in academic achievement and ensuring a positive school climate. Schools are recognized for exceptional student performance based on achieving exemplary performance in English Language Arts (ELA) and math, reducing suspensions, and demonstrating high graduation rates (high schools only). Schools recognized for closing the achievement gap enroll at least 40 percent of their students from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds and, in addition to demonstrating exemplary overall performance in ELA and math, achieve accelerated academic growth for one or more historically underserved student groups."
