The state of California on Thursday recognized Dr. J. Michael McGrath Elementary School as a Title 1 Academic Achievement Award winner. The school has received this recognition for the last three years.

"We are very proud of this school," said Mike Shapiro, president of the Newhall district's governing board.
"Our teachers, principals, and students work hard to achieve and we welcome this recognition."

Title 1 is a federal compensatory education program for schools with high percentages of students living in poverty.

More than 80 percent of McGrath's student population participates in the federal free and reduced lunch program and 55 percent are English language learners.

McGrath was built six years ago to serve the east Newhall community.
