Welcome to Capuchino High School

  • The move from middle to high school is a critical transition, one in which students must deal with great changes in academics, responsibility and social structure all at the same time. Capuchino High school acknowledges the challenges associated with this transition and have excellent counselors, teachers and staff who care for all students' socio-emotional well-beings and academic successes. 

    Capuchino offers a range of events and family nights to help acclimate students and families to the school. Please see below.
