State of the School 2017-2018

We opened the year with an enrollment of 2,763 students as we celebrate our 84th year. As we are now midway through the school year, I am excited to share with you how our school continues to shine in the areas of Academics, Athletics, Activities, and the Arts.
 
Academics
We are coming off of a stellar year last year with an all-time high of IB and Val Tech diplomas issued. Our AVID program received national demonstration school recognition and achieved a 100% 4-year college acceptance rate. Now that our first semester has come to a close we look ahead to spring testing and prepare for AP and IB exams, Smarter Balanced exams for juniors, the CA Science Test for seniors, and the ELPAC for English Learners.
 
Athletics
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. As the winter season comes to a close we are on the way to securing three league championships in wrestling, boys soccer, and girls water polo. I wish all the winter sports luck as they head into league finals and CIF competition.
 
Activities
Our Activities department is doing a fantastic job of leading a campaign of inclusion and connectedness this year. They are pushing 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. Our PBIS team is leading a movement of recognizing students for demonstrating positive behaviors on campus through their ROAR cards and weekly drawings.
 
Arts
Our performing arts have had an amazing year with both the Tiger Regiment & Color Guard taking 2nd Place at the Southwest Regional Band Competition this fall. Our Dance Team and All Male Hip Hop Team swept all three solo title divisions in the miss dance drill team california competition this month. 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. Students from our four orchestras were chosen to perform at Disney’s California Adventure this month through a video audition.  Being selected to perform is an honor for the students and our school. And last but not least, our drama program put on a successful fall production of 1984 and are preparing for their spring play production of You Can’t Take it With You.
 
As we begin the second semester I want to take a moment to say I am so incredibly proud of our school and all that you have accomplished. I want to encourage you to finish the second half of the year even stronger and I can’t wait to see what success we are able to achieve together. Remember, VHS is a place where you belong and where you come to thrive.

TEDx Valencia High School Thursday, March 29th, 2018

Catch the stream here. Regardless of personal politics, Valencia High School students are encouraged to be open-minded, critical thinkers – events like TEDx with the theme of “Empowerment” truly opens the door to such a wide variety of talks – talks that will be infused with the personal perceptions that our students bring to the concept. “EMPOWER” is an open-ended term that deals with motivation – depending on the student, the range of answers is endless. Along with the individual depth of the word itself, teenagers themselves often feel DISEMPOWERED by the world, limited by their age, and this event seeks to eradicate that disempowerment via the public articulation of their personal thoughts. Dialogue is not the enemy of peaceful coexistence, silence is – this event hopes to inspire ongoing dialogue, insight into a variety of students, and EMPOWER audience members to think and possibly act themselves.
