Welcome to the Alta Loma High School Academy Program
Alta Loma High School is excited to continue our new program and class schedule for the 2014-2015 school year. Designed by Alta Loma teachers & staff, our new Academy Schedule will increase academic achievement, offer more individualized help from teachers and peers, and help students build social relationships at school. This extra time is built in so students can get tutoring, help from teachers, and help from peers within the school day! The Academy Schedule involves 4 components: Brave Academy, Brave Study, Brave Tutorial, and Brave Activities. Students will be placed into one of these four areas during Academy time.
Now that the school year is well underway, I would like to provide you with some important information and reminders to help you contribute to your child’s success here at Alta Loma High School.
First, please ensure that your student is at school every day and attends each class. We always see a direct correlation between excellent attendance, punctuality, and preparation and academic achievement. Simply put, students who come to school each day, who are well rested, and who are prepared usually succeed. This year, students have an additional incentive. Students who achieve perfect attendance will be eligible to win a new car in the “It’s Cool to Stay in School” program sponsored by Mark Christopher Chevrolet. Students also have the opportunity to win valuable prizes month to month. This program comes to ALHS once every four years, so this is a great year to be a Brave and to be at school every day.
Next, we urge you to attend our upcoming Guidance Department presentations that are designed to help you understand the opportunities and challenges of each grade level. Please consider attending the Parent Nights for your child. The grade levels, dates, and times are below:
Sophomore Parent Night – Tuesday, August 26th from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.
These evenings will provide valuable information about the four-year plan, post-secondary options, grade remediation, studying tips, and resources. Our guidance counselors and administration will be on hand to answer questions. Your student will receive information about these nights along with their transcript (10-12) for you to review prior to the evenings.
At back to school night, I talked about the importance of relationships, resources, and rigor. Please help us connect with you by establishing relationships with your child’s counselor and teachers. The best first step is to open a School Loop account. If you have not done so yet, please consider doing that by accessing the link on this page.
Know that there are many resources to help your child be successful. These include our 4th period Academy Program and our after school Tutoring Center which will be open from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday beginning in early September in Room 71. Each department also offers personalized tutoring. Students and parents should make arrangements with individual teachers.
Finally, it is important that your child maintain a challenging academic schedule that will help him or her build the academic skills, foundation, and habits, to be prepared for whatever is next in his or her life. Whether is it is a university, junior college, military, or trade school, student must have the ability to persevere, think critically, read, write, compute, and more. Compromising on academics now may present greater challenges for your student later. I am always available to discuss this with students and their families.
Our goal at Alta Loma High School is to continue to pursue academic growth while providing a positive school climate and culture. Many of our extra-curricular activities continue to develop into robust programs that offer positive experiences for teens. Whether it is a sport, club, or other activity, we encourage your students to get involved and come to events!
I feel privileged to be principal at Alta Loma for another historic year. Last year, we celebrated 50 years. This year, we will see ground break on major facility upgrades. Alta Loma ‘s future is bright!
Please know that I am available to help you and feel free to contact me whenever the need arises.
We are going to have a great year!
