Welcome to West Covina High School, Home of the Bulldogs! I am honored and grateful to be your principal to provide students a world class educational experience. Twenty-fifth year in education as teacher, dean, assistant principal, principal and HR director, my focus will be to keep students first and assure WCHS strives to provide excellent educational customer service. West Covina High School offers something for everyone. We offer a comprehensive AP (Advanced Placement) program where we have been named College Board AP’s Honor Roll with 25 AP course offerings. Our AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program is a gateway to college access especially for our first-generation college-going students and we offer students tutoring year-round. Our seven CTE (Career Technical Education) pathways link our students to a career path and internships. Whether a student is in Culinary cooking up creative dishes in our Bistro or building competition robots in our Robotics program, students gain trust in their hands and instincts to build and create, carving a career niche for their own future success. In addition, our students are all leaders because they can participate in Leadership through ASB, Link Crew, Renaissance or Athletic Leadership. WCHS is committed to teaching our students the soft-skills of public speaking and collaboration. Our students learn these skills through academic collaboration in class and also outside of the classroom through arts, athletics and activities. Student athletes build grit through wins, losses and perseverance. Students in our Performance Arts Academy test their courage in singing and performing difficult pieces. Our content teachers challenge our students to the highest level and make sure they push themselves to be their best. At the same time, Bulldogs take the time to celebrate and relax. Our 1609 Open House is a showcase celebration of all of our students’ achievements. Meanwhile, our Wellness Center is the place where students can unwind, relax and find a Peer Mentor to support them throughout their high school career. West Covina High School is ready to be the launching pad for your Passion, Creativity and Spirit. So Bulldogs, let’s take full advantage of all that WCHS has to offer and make the best of this year! I look forward to seeing you on campus.
