A Message from Our Principal

Dear Community,

Welcome to our website! We are proud to present this communication vehicle, where you can keep up to date and informed about all our amazing programs and activities.

In our learning community, we are dedicated to ensuring our students are prepared for college and career success, and we recognize the importance of involving parents in the educational process. We are thrilled that you have decided to be a part of our school family. Research shows that when parents are actively involved in school, their children are absent less often, behave better, and, therefore, achieve more. Please visit our office to find out how you can get involved.

In Learning,

Benjamin Ruiz
