I am so proud to lead such a talented and dedicated family of educators and students. This year, we celebrate our 11th year of serving the Huntington Park community and our continued commitment to preparing all students with the scholarship, ambition, and strength of character to succeed in high school, college, and beyond!
In the fall 2016, Alliance Collins Family engaged in a school-wide, data-driven collaboration to develop a rigorous Instructional Focus to improve all of our students’ justification skills in speaking and writing. We believe our focus will not only lead to successful results on school-wide and statewide assessments, such as the CAASPP and AP exams, but will also enhance our students’ preparation for college and the career world. As such, our leadership team has expanded beyond administrators and counselors to ensure ongoing faculty expertise to play a major role in planning and leading this key focus of our academic program. Put the “Y” in Justify!
Additionally, our students continue to hone their innovative skills, as each student is equipped with a laptop to integrate technology as part of their daily learning experiences. We also continue to have an abundance of extracurricular activities, school clubs, enrichment and leadership programs, and an athletic program to appeal to the wide range of student interests. Lastly, I am also proud that we have introduced and committed to implementing Character Counts to ensure that we live up to our mission and shape our students to becoming wonderful citizens. Great success is not measured by academic growth and achievement alone, but also by the strength of character that we all model---trustworthiness and responsibility to consistently caring and being kind to others. At Collins, the sky is the limit with these endeavors and our amazing students. Go Jaguars!
Always with Pride,
