Distinguished Local Elementary School
Tierra Bonita Elementary School (TBES) has been recognized as an Apple Distinguished School for the third consecutive time. The Poway school now holds the distinction for 2013-2015, 2015-2017, and 2017-2019.
Apple Distinguished Schools are selected for their innovative integration of Apple products to inspire creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking. TBES has used iPads to expand student access to books and research materials, as well as collaborating with each other and other students around the world.
“This is just one example of how we are supporting PUSD’s mission to prepare our students for college and career readiness in a digitally-rich environment,” explained TBES Principal Mandy Bedard. “I am so proud of our students, staff, and the Tierra Bonita community who have worked together to earn this distinction and make Tierra Bonita a beacon for other schools looking to approach education differently.”
