The Huntington Beach Union High School District started Parent University in 2012. The HBUHSD recognized that students needed more outlets in their complicated lives to help them deal with emotional stressors such as: peer pressure, bullying, thoughts of suicide, abuse, and many other emotional struggles with feelings teenagers get and sometimes can not express into words.
Our vision is to educate, equip, and partner with our students and their support systems by offering a wide variety of relevant and effective programs and resources that will make a positive impact on the individual and the community. To help all students, parents, and staff “Get in the know.” If we are able to educate one human being and help them deal with a difficult circumstance that they didn’t know how to deal with before, then we feel this program has been worth our time. We hope to educate and invite everyone who visits our website and joins us at our free classes monthly. We appreciate any constructive feedback that might help us in future plans.
