Lynwood High School is truly a great school. We have over 20 staff members who are LHS alumni, including myself. I graduated from LHS and earned my Bachelors of Arts from UCLA. I then continued my education at California State University, Long Beach and California State University, Los Angeles. As a former LHS student I wanted to give back to the school that helped me at one point. It is a privilege to be able to serve as principal at the high school I attended. I encourage our LHS students to give back to Lynwood. To help students get involved we have over 50 clubs, organizations and sports.
We not only encourage students to be involved in school activities but also to make a commitment to their education. This summer we had 434 students graduate and of those students 53% were A-G eligible. Lynwood High School prides itself in ensuring that our students meet the A-G requirements. In addition, we had 672 students take AP exams in 21 different AP courses. Our students have the opportunity to take college courses on our campus through Compton College concurrent enrollment. To ensure that our students achieve academic success we offer multiple academic supports. The supports include AVID, SBAC test prep, AP summer boot camp, SAT test prep, tutoring through EduCare, The Movement and teachers, and our College and Career Center, which houses ETS and Cal SOAP.
At Lynwood High School we understand that we must address the needs of the whole student. Our district has partnerships with several agencies to help address student’s mental health needs. This year we are introducing a Wellbeing Center in partnership with Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. The goal is that our students will have adequate information regarding their health to help them make good decisions that affect their physical, social and emotional health.
Along with teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners. My goal as principal of LHS is to guide and support our staff and students to reach their highest potential, in a safe and nurturing environment.
I look forward to a great year ahead of us!
