Established by the U.S. Congress in 1987, the award acknowledges select U.S. organizations that have implemented successful quality management systems.
As a 2021 award recipient, the Charter School of San Diego becomes the first two-time awardee in the education category, having first won the award in 2015.
The Charter School of San Diego (California) provides free, personalized education to students in grades 6-12 who are at risk of not graduating from high school through a hybrid in-person/online study program. In addition to implementing quality systems, the school has also maintained an impressive academic track record, with "student performance for grades 6-8 and 11 in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress is double that of all competitors in English language arts and three times higher in math," according to a recent U.S. Department of Commerce press release.
