Chaparral High School

PHILOSOPHY

Chaparral Continuation High School provides an alternate educational program which meets the needs of a specific student population within the Bonita Unified School District. The school offers new opportunities for success to those students who have unresolved attendance problems and to students who have experienced credit failures and/or deficiencies. 

Recognizing the individual uniqueness of each student, Chaparral offers a strong individualized academic program which is both flexible and multi-faceted. Students are allowed to work at appropriate academic levels as they pursue their high school education. In order to ensure and encourage immediate success, students are awarded variable credits.

A positive school environment is maintained and continuous efforts are made to focus on social interaction and self-confidence building skills. Activities, assemblies, counseling services, and positive staff-student relationships also promote and encourage student success.

Mission Statement

The  mission of Chaparral High School is to  provide an  alternative  educational  format  that offers a safe, nurturing, and supportive  environment.  Students  are  given the opportunity to experience self-paced academic success with a rigorous and challenging curriculum, and as high school graduates, find their place as productive citizens prepared to fulfill their dreams.

Student Expectations

Students are expected to meet the following standards:
  1. Students must meet California Content Standards for each credit as established by each teacher.
  2. Students must be in attendance a minimum of 20 class periods every week.
  3. Students must pass an assessment of the standards for each credit at 70% or higher.
  4. All course work will receive letter grades of "A" through "C". Students do not receive "D" or "F" grades--students will not receive grades or credit for work until it satisfies the standard expectation of a minimum of "C" quality work.

Students 18 years of age and older who do not meet the minimum credit and/or attendance standards will be placed on a special contract. Violation of the contract may result in the student being referred to Adult Education/Community College or other High School Program.
