It is with great excitement that I write this message of introduction to you as the new Principal of Yorba Linda High School. Over the past four years, I have been a proud part of the Yorba Linda High School community serving as Assistant Principal of Curriculum and Instruction and most recently, Interim Principal.
Established is 2009, YLHS is a school founded on the traditions of student and community connections and academic excellence. In a relatively short period of time, YLHS became a California Distinguished School, Gold Ribbon School, and U.S. News and World Report Top High School. We have also achieved a 90% Advanced Placement pass rate and, based on state test scores, ranked in the top 5 of over 70 public high schools academically in Orange County. I am honored that I have been entrusted by the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District, Board of Education, and community to be your Principal.
As we enter the final three months of the 2020-2021 school year, I am encouraged as school on our campus continues to shift back towards "normal" with in-person instruction and the return of sports and activities. Our students, staff, and families have done an amazing job of demonstrating flexibility and resiliency throughout this school year. I look forward to continuing our traditions of connectedness and academic excellence while partnering with you in building new shared commitments to meet the needs of all of our students.
