The Huntington Beach City School District is an educational community with a long history of excellence in education. It is committed to providing students with academic programs and classroom instruction of the highest quality. Our schools provide a strong emphasis on achieving proficiency and above in the areas of literacy, mathematics and all core areas of the curriculum. We are also committed to providing opportunities which expand and broaden the scope of learning for all students. Regular homework assignments reinforce classroom instruction and develop independent study habits, responsibility, and self motivated direction for students. In addition, another of our top priorities is to provide a safe and orderly learning environment that fosters an atmosphere conducive for learning.
The district’s high expectations for students and the staff are reflected in high API scores and student performance levels. Our schools are frequent recipients of many local, state, and federal awards and honors, including recognition as California Distinguished Schools and National Blue Ribbon Schools.
Our school district is fortunate to be located in a community that understands and values the importance of education. We have parents who make education a priority in their homes. Our community also values and recognizes the importance of preparing our students to be contributing members of society.
We encourage and invite you to become involved in the learning process of our students. There are many opportunities for you to participate in school and district committees or volunteer at the school site. We hope you will take the opportunity to do so.
We are very proud of our schools and hope that you will visit them often. When you do, you will observe students, teachers, support staff, parents and other vital members of our educational community working together as a team. You have our commitment that as a district team we will focus our resources, creativity, and staff talents in order to continue to provide the highest quality of instruction and education experiences for all of our students.
