Principal's Message

Principal's Message Image
It is an honor and privilege to introduce myself as the Principal of Valencia High School. I have been fortunate to serve as your Assistant Principal for the past five years and am excited to continue my service in my new role. At Valencia High School we are committed to ensuring your student is provided with the highest quality educational experience in a safe and engaging environment. We believe in setting high expectations for students in a nurturing environment.
I would like to take a moment to share with you the recent success of our Valencia Academy: International Baccalaureate (IB) and Valencia Technology (Val Tech). This past year our IB program graduated a record-breaking 84 IB diploma candidates. Our Val Tech program continues to thrive with 77 Val Tech diploma candidates and a growing number of impressive internship opportunities afforded to our students. In addition, we offer an impressive combination of over 50 Advanced Placement and IB courses on our campus with a policy of access and success for all.
I am incredibly proud to share that this past year we were recognized as an AVID National Demonstration School for our exemplar instructional strategies and schoolwide college readiness system. As we move forward as an AVID National Demonstration School we will continuously work to improve the educational experience for all students through engaging instructional strategies and a schoolwide culture of support.
We also continue to offer robust Career Technical Education opportunities for students who are preparing for their post-secondary career pursuits in Education and Child Development, Building and Construction Trades, and Public Services. Students are able to gain hands-on experience and knowledge in the pathways of their choice. In addition, our English Learner and Special Education programs are taking on new heights as we move forward with integration and inclusion. We are committed to improving and to analyze data, reflect, and refine our support classes to ensure that all learners are able to succeed.
Our focus for the 2017-2018 school year is empowerment, with students taking ownership of their learning experience. We want our students engaged, challenged, and supported everyday they are with us. I thank you for entrusting us with your student and I look forward to our partnership in preparing them for success now and in the future. I look forward to the opportunity to meet each of you in person in the upcoming year.
Go Tigers!
