Principal's Message

Principal’s Message 2017 2nd Quarter

As we progress into the 2nd Quarter we have celebrations to share. Attendance rates are on the rise, suspension rates have declined, Student Honor and Recognition Program (SHARP) had 271 students apply and qualify, 1,102 students were honored for qualifying for the Honor Roll based on their Spring Semester grade report, and 64% of our Senior Class scored at the Met or Exceeds level on the SBAC, while 28% Met or Exceeded in the Math SBAC. In addition, our Girls Volleyball, Girls Tennis, and Cross Country teams went on to compete in the Fall Season CIF Southern Section Playoffs.

 

We continue to work diligently to offer academic interventions for our students; including additional Math courses; AP Peer Tutoring after-school in the Library on Tuesday’s, Wednesday’s and Thursday’s; teachers offer academic assistance during non-instructional time; the Big Ideas Math textbooks offer online tutorial; we offer IXL online Math tutoring and instruction to assist students with clarity and comprehension; the Khan Academy online program is also another avenue for students who desire the opportunity to challenge themselves and develop their academic prowess; and for students who are in need of credit recovery there are Shmoop online and other courses outside the instructional day to make-up a course on campus (for more information contact your child’s counselor).

 

Our five Pathways are providing cutting edge “hands on” opportunities in their designated industrial areas for students to experience and explore components of the career path. With our new Hospital Skills Lab for HOSM, black box theater, portable film studio, and most recently updated photography equipment for DMAC, Robotics Lab and Arduino Lab for ATM, and Animal Care class for Odyssey.

 

All this in a beautifully manicured and well-kept campus to provide students a welcoming environment that is conducive to learning.

 

There is a great deal going on a Lakewood High School, and we like to say we are the best kept secret in the Long Beach Unified School District.

 

That’s all for now, and remember, to “keep it good in the Wood”.
