Hall Middle School Named "California Distinguished School!


Dear LCMSD Community,

We are excited to announce that Hall Middle is one of two middle and high schools in Marin to be awarded 2021 California Distinguished School! The California Department of Education (CDE) identifies and awards eligible schools based on performance and progress on state indicators specified on the California School Dashboard, the state’s accountability and continuous improvement system. Indicators include test scores, suspension rates, and conditions and climate.

“These schools are great examples of California’s commitment to provide outstanding public education for all students, and their data-driven efforts have helped ensure that their students leave with the tools and skills they need to be successful after graduation,” Thurmond said. “Our thanks go to the entire communities surrounding these schools, including the teachers, administrators, and classified employees as well as the students and their families who, through teamwork, all accomplished this impressive achievement together.”

We are proud of Hall Middle’s dedication to excellence, demonstrated through this award. Additionally,  Hall was designated as a School to Watch in 2019 where only 16 middle schools in California were named; Hall being the first ever in Marin. 

Congratulations Hall students, teachers, staff, Dr. Brown, Mr. Shaw, and parents! You are a model for middle schools far and wide.  

Go Cougars!

Brett Geithman, Ed.D.
