"Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it."

-Lou Holtz

Maintaining Focus

I hope you enjoyed your treats and the delicious food last week. I am truly appreciative of the work that you do with our students and your selflessness to make sure our students succeed! I apologize for being out last week, but the flu is no joke. I am in

much

better health and ready to tackle this week.


As we move into the last weeks of the 2015-2016 school year, we need to ensure that our students are focused and on task through lessons and work. We are working with students and monitoring progress so that they finish the year strong. Please ensure that you are visible and monitoring students. Have a great week!

Our Mission

We believe that through teaching and learning, we have the opportunity to impact and positively change the lives of our students. We believe that all students are capable of defining and experiencing success, ultimately building confidence in themselves while instilling a spirit of generosity, drive, passion, and focus. We work in collaboration with San Jacinto College to help at-risk students attain college credit with the aspiration of earning an Associate’s Degree and Distinguished High School diploma in four years.
