I am blessed, humbled, and honored to come back to Chino Hills High School for the 2016-2017 academic year as your Principal. The Husky Staff, who remain passionate and hardworking in serving our community are one of the reasons why excellence is prevalent amongst our campus’ Academics, Activities, Athletics, and Visual/Performing Arts programs. This year we are committed to continued excellence, as last year was one in which we received many positive accolades and our desire is to keep them coming.
Last year alone, our Band Percussion Ensemble came back from Dayton Ohio as Silver medalists. Seven Husky athletic teams became Baseline League Champions with Boys Varsity Basketball winning a State Championship as they finished the season with a record of 35-0. Collectively, Husky students won Athletic and Artistic National titles. Boys Varsity Basketball was named the #1 team in the Nation, while Dance Team received a National title for their performance in the Small Lyrical Division.
The senior class of 2016 earned over 3.5 million dollars in scholarship money with some seniors earning individual amounts totaling $500,000 and $200,000. Several graduates received acceptances from universities such as: Harvard University, Cornell University, Johns Hopkins University, Oberlin University, Stanford University, the Naval Academy, etc. Additionally, several of our Husky graduates chose to serve our country as members in the United States Armed Forces.
Academically, Chino Hills High School continues to excel. It is with great pleasure that I formally announce that US News & World Report has once again awarded Chino Hills High School a Silver Medal for the California ranking of 227 and the National ranking of 1293. With a student body of 3,063 students, our College Readiness Index (CRI) is 37.7% with an Academic Performance Index (API) of 821. 44% of Chino Hills High School students participated in Advanced Placement exams and 81% of our students passed the AP exam in which they took. I am extremely proud of our accomplishments, as the Huskies continue to be the “Top Dog” in CVUSD for the third consecutive year.
Chino Hills High School students have proven once again that they are indeed champions and remain to be the Pride of the Hills! I thank not only our students for their continued hard work as they strive for excellence but to all the families that have spent countless hours supporting their children. It truly takes a team!
It Takes a Team!
