Meet Our Principal

As we prepare to celebrate our first graduating class- the class of 2021. I wanted to personally reach out to you and recognize how special this upcoming school year will be. I recognize how our students and families have overcome many unique circumstances. Circumstances that none of us could have predicted. But we are Champions! We will triumph through Distance Learning, strengthen our community, and march towards excellence. In the 2020-2021 school year, we are excited about building upon our successes academically, culturally, and continuing our positive influence in the community.

During this school year, we will be focusing on our 2023 WASC Action Plan as we continue to review data to evaluate, revise and refine our instruction to ensure all of our students are performing at their highest academic levels. This year we will continue the professional development opportunities for our teachers, increase our outreach efforts to families, and continue to increase the equity and access for all students.

We believe that ALL means ALL- and will continuously strive towards preparing all students for College, Leadership, and Life. I am looking forward to another amazing school year in service to our students, parents, and community.

Best to you all,

Cen'Cere Cooks
