Our six comprehensive high schools, two alternative high schools, and adult education program enjoy both local recognition as well as a national reputation. Our successes including high test scores, interscholastic championships, and acclaimed performing arts is a direct result of a strong teaching faculty, a dedicated classified staff, and a strong leadership team of school site administrators that receive support from a well-respected and knowledgeable Board of Trustees. This, coupled with strong parent and community advocates, enables our district to educate, prepare, and inspire our students to change the world.
