Principal's Message

Dear Students and Parents,

The vision for SOAR High School students is that they leave our walls confident, critical thinkers prepared for advanced learning in college and beyond. Students will be proficient communicators who continually adapt their active and creative minds to a rapidly changing world. This is more important than ever. Many of our young students will have jobs in the future that have yet to be created. Their technological skills will have to be advanced in order to be competitive in higher education and eventually the work force.

Partnering with Antelope Valley College, our entire staff works hard to provide our students with a rigorous and equitable education. It is our primary goal to ensure that all students experience a challenging educational program and meet high standards. To accomplish this, the active involvement of everyone at school and at home is required. Success begins with accountability and must include a focus on results, an emphasis on doing what works, active parent involvement, and support in the form of community partnerships.

Involvement from everyone will ensure that we have a school culture of high achievement. I would like to extend a hearty welcome to everyone in our program and wish you all the best in your matriculation!

Chris Grado, Ed.D.
