As the principal of SOAR High School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for an exciting school year! Our staff and faculty have been working hard to provide students with the best possible Early College High School (ECHS) experience while addressing both access and equity barriers for students. At SOAR, we continue to have a strong foundation in Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) principles and remain committed to our mission which supports science, math, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) activities.
SOAR’s vision is the following:
SOAR Stars are life-long learners and self-advocates who solve the most pressing challenges through an unwavering pursuit of knowledge, innovation, and collaboration, becoming engaged and productive leaders in their communities.
Involvement from everyone is needed in order to ensure that students fulfill this vision. Parents, especially, make up a critical part of the team that will enable students to excel in this program. We encourage all stakeholders to reach out to us if we can ever help you in any way.
On behalf of the entire staff and faculty at SOAR, we look forward to working with SOAR students, families, and community members this year and sincerely wish students the best while beginning or continuing the journey with us at SOAR!
Stephanie A. Herrera, Ed.D.
Principal, SOAR High School
