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 2013-2014 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.

Dear ALHS Parents and Students

Greetings!  I hope all is well with you as we enter the busiest time of year.  Just around the corner, we have testing, Spring Break and Prom.  Before we all know it, graduation will be upon us.

Spring Break begins on March 15.  School will be closed from March 15 to March 24, and will resume on Tuesday, March 25.  I wish you all a very restful and enjoyable break.  Our Prom will be held at the Nixon Library on April 5.

In April, students will begin a modified version of academic achievement tests.  The California Standards Test, the CSTs under the STAR testing system, has been suspended by the State of California as it prepares to embark upon a system that measures student achievement of the new Common Core State Standards.  This year sophomores will take the federally mandated Life Science test only.  Remember, the sophomores have already taken the CAHSEE and score reports should arrive in April.  Juniors will take the Early Assessment Program (EAP) tests in April.  These tests will help students understand their “readiness for college” status in English and Math.  Also, juniors will take the Smarter Balanced assessment in math and English that begins to test knowledge of the CCSS. 

In May, students in Advanced Placement classes will take the AP exams in any courses in which they are enrolled and have elected to take an exam.  These are important exams which may earn the students college credit.  We encourage all parents to talk to their students about all the exams they take and to support them by encouraging them to get plenty of rest and eating a good breakfast before an exam, and maintaining a positive attitude about exams.

Third quarter report cards will be mailed home on Friday, March 14th.  Please review your child’s progress closely and contact teachers and/or counselors if you have concerns.   To further support students in their learning, we continue to offer the Tutoring Center Monday through Thursday in Room 74 from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m.  Teachers are also available after school by appointment to tutor students as needed. 

Finally in the report card mailer, you will find a letter from me explaining our new start time for the 2014-2015 school year.  We will begin school next year at 8:05 a.m. and release students at 2:55.  Please read that letter and contact me if you have questions.

Please help us support your students’ achievement as we proceed into this critical time of year.  You may monitor students’ progress on School Loop, and notify us if you have any concerns.  Help us with your students’ achievement by providing structured study and homework time at home and by ensuring that students get plenty of rest so that they may come to school prepared to learn and perform well.  Attendance and punctuality are also imperative to the academic achievement of all of our students.

As always, if there is anything we can do to help do not hesitate to contact us.

Warm regards,

Jim Cronin
