Principal's Message

   The spring semester is off to a great start! The second half of the school year is always

very busy with a whole host of activities, including state testing, Advanced Placement

testing, the prom, and graduation (and a bunch more!). The pace in the classroom is also

very quick this semester, so please encourage your students to stay on top of their

assignments and responsibilities so they don’t fall behind.


   In terms of testing, we will once again have the full implementation of the computerized

state testing this year, the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress

(CAASPP). Our entire junior class will be testing, and there is also one test for

sophomores as well. State testing at Hart High School will take place on April 18-22; we

will publish the testing schedule as we get closer.


   Finally, construction will continue at Hart High School. As you know, we had a new all-

weather track and turf field installed last summer, and this will be followed up with the

removal of the T portables, the addition of two tennis courts, and the construction of a

two-story, 22-classroom building where the portables once were. Construction on those

projects will begin this summer. With all of this work being done, summer school will

not be held on Hart High School’s campus this summer. Our students, though, will be

able to attend summer school at West Ranch High School.


Again, welcome back, and I hope you and your students have a great second semester!


We are Alive with Pride!
