I am excited to begin my first year as the principal of Valencia High School. Valencia high school believes in PRIDE - TRADITION - EXCELLENCE. These shared beliefs are the pillars of the school’s Vision Statement. Our Vision is that all students are T.I.G.E.R.S. TIGERS are students who are Thinkers, Interpersonal communicators, Growing healthy relationships, Engaged learners, Resourceful technologists, and Successful citizens in a global economy.
Our commitment to EXCELLENCE has had many rewards. The Washington Post and US News & World Report Ranked Valencia High School in the top 4% the all the high schools in the nation. The state of California awarded VHS its’ highest honor, the Gold Ribbon Award for all the work we do to prepare our students for college and career. During the Spring our students took over 2,000 AP and IB exams in 50 different subject areas. 100% of our AVID seniors will be attending college in the fall and 80% of them will be at a four year university.
TRADITION has made Valencia High School a destination school. We currently have students enrolled from 175 different middle schools. The word is out and both students and parents want to be part of Valencia’s reputation as an academic powerhouse. VHS offers Academic Decathlon, Science Olympiad, Chemistry Olympiad and CyberPatriot Competition. We are proud to say all four of our teams advanced to compete at the state or national level. The VHS robotics team hosted the first ever regional robotics competition drawing teams from throughout the state.
Schoolwide PRIDE is at an all time high at Valencia. VHS athletics dominated the Empire League and captured a school record of 9 league championships. Congratulations to Football, Girls Golf, Girls Tennis, Boys and Girls Cross Country, Boys Water Polo, Boys Soccer, Boys Tennis and Boys Track and Field. 15 of our teams advanced to the CIF play-offs. Girls Tennis won the CIF Championship and one of our female wrestlers won the State Championship.
Students at Valencia High School take the PYLUSD ADVANTAGE to develop their talents in our award winning Drama, Marching Band, Drumline, Color Guard, Jazz Band, Choir, Orchestra and Dance team. Our programs were recognized by the Orange County Register, ranked in the Top 5 in southern California and represented VHS in regional, state and national competitions. ASB was awarded the Outstanding Leadership Program Award by the California Association of Student Leaders for their 7,000 hours of promoting promoting activities and 65,000 hours of community service.
In closing, Valencia High School is the best place to LEARN, WORK and PLAY. I invite you to come see us ROAR!
