Home of the Comets
Welcome to our school! Our goal is to ensure that all our students receive a solid academic foundation that will propel them as they progress through middle and high school so that they can graduate from high school prepared for college and a career. Our teachers, administrators, other staff and volunteers devote countless hours each year to providing our students with a solid education in a nurturing environment.
We are proud of the programs we have that support students. We are especially excited about the new districtwide plan to improve achievement. Our teachers and administration are joining others from across the district to align our curriculum to the California state standards so that our students experience the best education possible.
We encourage you to become an active member of our school community. Working together, our students can experience the highest quality education.
