Carmel High School was recognized with the 2013 Civic Learning Award for California public high schools for its U.S. government and politics class, its mock trial club and team, and its student leadership.
The award is co-sponsored by California Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye and California State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson. It spotlights successful efforts to engage students in civic learning and identify models that can be replicated in other schools.
The announcement was made Feb. 28 at the civic learning summit in Sacramento. For more information, click here.
