Dear CHS Families,
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year!
It is an honor to enter my first year as the principal of Capuchino High School. Over the coming school year, we will provide your student an unparalleled academic experience, access to a robust set of extra-curricular activities, social-emotional support, and guidance in preparation for their successful transition to college and career. As a Gold Ribbon school, we pride ourselves in innovation and continuous improvement. If at any point you have questions, feedback, and/or concerns, I hope you will reach out to a staff member so that we can provide your student with nothing short of an excellent educational experience.
There are a number of elements that distinguish Capuchino from other high schools. At Capuchino, we have a deep commitment to personalization, academic rigor, and student support. Our 9th and 10th grade students are teamed with a common set of teachers, in order to create a high level of personalization. In addition, as an International Baccalaureate (IB) School, we have adopted and will continue to refine a comprehensive instructional framework to ensure a differentiated level of challenge and student support. One strand of this support includes offering two 30-minute Academic Support Time (AST) periods during the week where students receive additional support from their teachers. Finally, students will find an ever expanding set of extra-curricular offerings, outstanding visual and performing art courses, expansive career technical education courses, two leadership classes, 19 varsity sports, and a variety of clubs based on student interest.
At CHS, we also recognize the importance of supporting the social and emotional well-being of our students. We believe that social and emotional wellness impacts learning and we want to proactively support our students. Some students experience increased stress and/or anxiety in high school. Please contact your student’s school counselor if your student is ever in need of support. We want to ensure that our students thrive within and beyond Capuchino High School!
