I want to thank all of our faculty, staff and families for supporting our “Open House”. In addition, we had an excellent “Gold Ribbon” ceremony. The Gold Ribbon awards recognize California schools that have made gains in implementing the academic content and performance standards adopted by the State Board of Education. These include, the California Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics, California English Language Development Standards, and Next Generation Science Standards.
Our students come to us with attributes that often differ from our own. Their ethnic culture goes to the core of their being, which requires us to understand the complex and unique make-up of our students. Being a culturally proficient school allows us to respond in ways that empower our students to grow socially, emotionally and intellectually. Thus, we have been selected as an “Equal Opportunity School”. We have joined with 77 other high schools in the 3rd cohort of AP/IB Equity & Excellence Project.
I am proud to work for the “Greatest High School in the Universe”!
