School Motto "Setting the Standard for Excellence"

Sports Kudos!


Athlete Avenue from AD Murphy:

What a beautiful day and place to play a baseball game. Our baseball team came away with a 6-0 thumping of Mater Dei on Saturday at Petco Park. They have improved out overall record to 16-3 and are unblemished in league play. Thank you to all of you who came out and supported the team.

Did you know we have the 44th ranked softball team in all of California? These girls are off to a 12-3 record as they enter their way into league and mover toward the playoffs. Our lady lacrosse team is currently 8-4 and our boy stickers are out to a 1-1 league start. Our men volley-ballers are out to a 12-4 start as they jump, set and spike their way into league play. Remember we have over 200 athletes on the swim and track teams and you must know one these students so please come out and support them.

It's great to be a Baron Athlete!

Creating A College Going Culture

In a general sense, creating a college-going culture requires a change in attitude on a global scale. As a school, behave as if you expect all students to achieve at a high level, actively work to remove barriers from learning and teach students and families how to help themselves.
