Principal's Message

Principal’s Year End Message
We opened the year with an enrollment of 2,763 students as we celebrate our 84th year. As the year is coming to a close, I am excited to share with you how our school has shined in the areas of Academics, Athletics, Activities, and the Arts.
We are coming off of a stellar year last year with an all-time high of IB and Val Tech diplomas issued. This year we have surpassed that record and set a new all-time high with 85 IB Diploma Candidates and 79 Val Tech Diploma Candidates. Our AVID program received national demonstration school recognition and has once again achieved a 100% 4-year college acceptance rate. You would be hard pressed to find any public or private high school in Orange County that cumulatively out performed Valencia in Academic Decathlon, Science Olympiad, Chemistry Olympiad, CyberPatriot, Robotics, FBLA, Speech and Debate teams placing in top in the county with some advancing to the state or national level.
It has been another impressive year for the the Tigers with five league championships in the fall from football, girls tennis, girls golf, and boys and girls cross country. The winter season brought on more success with our boys soccer, wrestling, and girls water polo teams earning league championships as well. Our girls water polo team went on to take CIF runner-ups in the championship game. The spring closed out our athletic season with league championships in boys tennis, boys track, girls track, and girls swimming. When it comes to athletic competition, the VHS Tigers are truly revered and respected and I am proud of how you have represented us.
Our Activities department did a fantastic job of leading a campaign of inclusion and connectedness this year. They pushed for increased attendance and engagement of students at extracurricular activities and have done so by providing free entry to sporting events for students with an ID card. The ASB as a collective group logged over 6,500 Community Service Hours, provided over 3,000 cans to the Second Harvest Food Bank, and helped to raise over $2000 for Pediatric Cancer Awareness and Hurricane Harvey Relief combined. In addition to their community work, the ASB also helped to plan 6 assemblies, 4 school wide dances, and supported athletic events throughout the year. Our PBIS team led a movement of recognizing students for demonstrating positive behaviors on campus through their ROAR cards and weekly drawings. Through their combined efforts we held our first anti-bullying week, complete with pledges, lunch rallies, Humans of Valencia campaign, and an assembly.
Our performing arts have had an amazing year with the Tiger Regiment Marching Band, Drumline, and Colorguard consistently ranked as one of the top schools in Southern California. Our Tiger Regiment placed 6th at the SCSBOA 5A championship while our Concert & Jazz Bands earned superior ratings at all of their adjudicated music festivals. The Colorguard team won silver medals at both their championships this year.  Our Dance Team and All Male Hip Hop Team took championships at the  West Coast Elite National in the large Hip Hop Division this year and swept all three solo title divisions in the miss dance drill team California competition. This is an accomplishment that has never been achieved by any school. Our Vocal Jazz had the opportunity to perform at Riverside City College at a festival with Avi Kaplan, formerly of Pentatonix and one of our students was selected to be the vocal percussionist for the finale out of 225 students from 17 schools. Our Sinfonia orchestra received the highest rating possible, a Unanimous Superior. This marks the twelfth consecutive year that our orchestras have received "Superior" ratings. And last but not least, our drama program put on  successful productions of 1984, You Can't Take it With You, and a Placentia City historical play performance at Bradford House. At the DTASC Competition they earned 1st place in Group Comedy as well as Costume and Make-up Design. At the FJC Competition they earned 3rd place in serious monologue and were finalists for comedy monologue and group comedy.
I want to express how incredibly proud I am of our school and all that you have accomplished. I can’t wait to see what success we are able to achieve together in the coming year. Always remember, VHS is where you belong and where you come to thrive.
Go Tigers!
