As this school year comes to an end; I am extremely proud of VHS’s commitment to making sure ALL students are ENGAGED in and out of the classroom was not only a goal but a reality. Our teachers understand that their students need to be actively engaged and energized every time they step in their classroom. They also know that in order for our students to fully participate in today’s global community they will need to be Creative, Critical Thinkers, Communicators, and Collaborators. I would like to take a moment to share some of the great things that happened as we close out the year.
I’m proud to announce The Washington Post released their annual rankings of how well the nation’s top high schools challenge their students. Valencia High School ranked #770 in the NATION! 2,324 schools made the list from over 22,000 high schools nationwide.
Also just announced; US News and World Report named Valencia High School a Silver Medalist in the 2017 BEST HIGH SCHOOLS rankings. From nearly 22,000 eligible high schools, Valencia High School was ranked #1103 in the nation, #183 in the state of California and #160 among all magnet schools.
Finally, after an extensive analysis of student data for every public school in California, Valencia was a clear leader in getting students to grade level and beyond and has been named an Honor Roll School for the 2016 California Honor Roll.
Did you know Valencia High School was named an AVID National Demonstration School? This spring Valencia was recognized for its schoolwide college readiness system and exemplar instructional strategies by AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination), a nonprofit organization that provides educators with proven real-world strategies to accelerate the performance of underrepresented students to that these students and all students across the entire campus succeed in college, career and life. The school joins approximately 150 other AVID National Demonstration Schools and was selected through an application process, a screening and a review that included a site visit. AVID is implemented in over 5,600 school across the nation, meaning that less than 3 percent of AVID schools earn the distinction of AVID National Demonstration School
