It's hard to believe how we sped through summer and are already back to school (although this week's hot weather reminds us that it is still summer).
The Compton School Administration been working hard with teachers and staff to prepare for another year focused on the success of our students. We've been making outstanding progress--test scores are going up, graduation rates are increasing. Our focus on student success has been paying off (in fact, we were featured on KABC Channel 7 News on Friday night talking about the turnaround that is well underway in Compton schools.)
We expect many positive things to occur in the coming school year--building on the success we've had.
The beginning of our middle college program is a highlight--as 9th graders begin a journey that, if completed, will result in not only a high school degree, but also two years of community college! If you have an 8th grader this year, please check out the program. It's a great opportunity for our students.
For our parents with younger children, let me remind you the most important thing you can do to make sure your child succeeds in school is to make sure they ATTEND school. Every year of school is important, but studies show that children from kindergarten to 3rd grade who attend school regularly are more likely to complete school and do better!
Let's have a great year!
