This year, Alliance Collins Family College-Ready High School (Collins) celebrates its 13th year of serving the Huntington Park community! I am so proud to lead our amazing team, as we strive to prepare all scholars with the scholarship, ambition, and strength of character to succeed in high school, college, and beyond!
At Collins, we measure the success of our jaguars not only be their academic performance, but also by their character and citizenship.
It excites me that our scholars outperformed both LAUSD and the State average for proficiency rates on the 2018 ELA and Math SBAC, set new school records on 2018 AP exam pass rates, and demonstrated significant growth on the SAT! Together, we Put the “Y” in Justify! Together, for the 2018-19 school year, we aim to raise scholar achievement in these areas to the next level and set new records!
Additionally, I am thrilled that at Collins, we have ramped up our support for our scholars in the essential area of social-emotional development, provided them with a greater abundance of extracurricular opportunities, continue to offer a diverse range of school clubs, enrichment and leadership programs, and an athletic program that has expanded in sports teams from the previous school year. Our aim has been to provide a safe learning environment with diverse learning experiences that enable all scholars to find a place of comfort and opportunity to flourish.
Over the second decade of our journey, we aspire to jump from 30% to 75% or more of our scholars graduating with a 4-year college degree! We believe our efforts to shape and strengthen our scholars’ character, resilience, and academic skills will guide them to become powerful agents of change for the community, achieve their dreams, and positively impact the world at large!
Always with Pride,
