Welcome EHS Parents and Students to the 2019-2020 School Year! I am truly honored to serve as the Principal of Eastside High School. As a former EHS teacher, parent of an elementary school student, and lifelong resident of the Antelope Valley, serving the students and community of EHS is a privilege and exciting opportunity. I am deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your students. We will accomplish this by setting rigorous academic expectations for all students and providing a safe and secure learning environment. EHS is setting high standards for our own performance, ensuring our students have the most up-to-date technology, best teachers and resources while engaging and collaborating with the local community. It is our goal that every Eastside High School graduate has multiple options for their careers and continuing their education.
Eastside High School will continue to be on the cutting edge of innovation and career/college preparation. Our students will continue to be expected to perform in the classroom, participate in co-curricular activities and display responsible citizenship at school and in the community. EHS is proud to offer multiple academies and programs for our students. We are honored to be a National AVID Demonstration School as well as offering student’s career/college pathways through our Gold Accredited Project Lead the Way Biomedical Academy, our Digital Arts Academy, our Education and Social Service Careers Academy and our award winning Pathway to the Arts. We truly offer something for everyone.
We are looking forward to a positive, upbeat school year at EHS. I encourage all students to take pride in our beautiful campus and embrace the many academic, social and career opportunities at your disposal. EHS will continue to be a school community in which every person feels respected, valued, and is encouraged and challenged to achieve at the highest levels. Have a wonderful 2019-2020 school year. Go Lions!
