Welcome to the 2023-24 school year. I am excited to start this school year as my 7th year as your principal. This year will be filled with opportunities to connect with the school and achieve new academic accomplishments. This year will be filled with engaging, meaningful, and rigorous work in the classroom as we continue to focus on academic achievement.
This year marks the 132nd year for EHS Tigers. Elsinore high has a heartfelt culture of Tradition, Caring, and Respect. During this year, we will continue to build on the foundational values that have been established. Our motto this year will continue to be We believe we will achieve. The staff at Elsinore High is a dedicated group of professionals who work extremely hard to support all our students' achievements and honor the traditions of the Tiger legacy.
Students, as you begin this year, it is important to be connected to the school. Elsinore High has many opportunities for you to explore, connect,and achieve. We offer many programs for all the students at EHS to prepare you to enter the world of college and/or career readiness. We offer many CTE programs including; Animal Science, Agriscience, Public Health, Automotive Technology, Graphic Design, Video Production, and Computer Science. We also have a strong athletic department with opportunities for you to compete and defend our City, League, and CIF (California Interscholastic Federation) titles. Students interested in the visual and performing arts can take advantage of our award-winning Band, our Drama productions, and visual art classes. We also have a strong JROTC program for students who are interested in the military after high school. Our Family Forum will invite you to a day of learning about yourself and listening to other students' stories. Our AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program has over 25% of our students enrolled and over 95% of them will be attending college. Connect with Elsinore and you will achieve, we believe in you!
Along with the staff we will continue the legacy of success established by building strong healthy relationships with students. Our goals this year are to continue building relationships, focus on our school systems and continue to implement the Common Core Standards.
One of the most important components of a great school is the partnership between the school and the parents. The team that works together for the best interests of our students will find the greatest success. Parents, please stay involved at the high school level. There are many opportunities for parents to become involved including joining PTSA, School Site Council, Booster organizations, and attending sporting events and student performances. Please contact me if you or your student need support to be successful at Elsinore High School.
I look forward to a year filled with health, success, achievement, and building memories that will last a lifetime.
In caring, with tradition and respect,
Elsinore High School
