Principal's Message

Principal's Message August 2015

Welcome to California High School, home of the Grizzlies.  We are a school with a rich tradition of excellence in academics, athletics, school culture, and community support.  Since 1973 our school has taken pride in providing a well-rounded and rigorous academic program designed to mold our students into contributors to our global community.

Our commitment to implementing the Common Core State Standards is reflected in rigorous classes, which require students to read various forms of text, participate in frequent writing tasks, utilize speaking and listening skills, and explore media sources to enhance their learning. We offer a strong college preparatory program, which includes many honors and Advanced Placement courses.

As a comprehensive high school, California High School offers courses in technology, art, business, choral and instrumental music, drama, and physical education. We have Engineering, Biomedical Science, and Computer Science course pathways.  Students are encouraged to explore the courses offered through our county’s Regional Occupation Program.

A well-rounded high school experience includes active participation in activities outside of the classroom. Our athletic programs, academic competition teams, visual and performing arts programs, student government, and student clubs offer opportunities for students with a wide variety of interests.

Parents who participate in our parent organizations are integral to the school’s academic and extracurricular programs. We invite you to join the PTSA, Academic Boosters, Athletic Boosters, Choral Music Boosters, Drama Boosters, and Instrumental Music Boosters. Each of these organizations provides financial and volunteer support for our students and teachers.

Our staff and community are committed to providing a safe, challenging, and positive environment that promotes respect, productivity, and active participation in school activities. Please read carefully through this handbook as it contains rules, procedures, and useful information for the school year.

At California High School, we set high standards for ourselves, work hard, and achieve our goals.  Welcome to the Den!

Go Grizzlies!

Sarah Cranford, Principal
