Green Valley High School Named a Model Continuation High School by the California Department of Education
February 14, 2018
Yucaipa, CA -- The California Department of Education has awarded the prestigious designation of California Model Continuation High School to Green Valley High School in Yucaipa. Out of more than 400 continuation high schools statewide, a total of 32 schools were selected in 2018, each school holding this distinction for three years. The Model Continuation High Schools Recognition Program is a joint effort between the California Department of Education and the California Continuation Education Association recognizing schools that provide innovative and effective educational programs that help at-risk students earn their diploma and prepare for careers and post-secondary education.
The Green Valley High School campus offers an engaging academic curriculum emphasizing flexible, individualized instructional strategies, personalized guidance and counseling and a high degree of parent/guardian involvement. “Green Valley is fortunate to be supported by a district and community that fully supports us to the highest degree possible. We have an amazing staff that is devoted to providing our students with a place where they feel safe, cared for and engaged. Our students learn in a variety of different ways and respond to different methods from those traditionally utilized in a classroom. The teachers at Green Valley build upon this diversity to help our students be successful. Green Valley is honored to be designated as a model continuation high school recognizing the high-quality educational environment we provide.” (Cara Prentiss, Principal)
During the California Model Continuation High School process, students reported Green Valley High School is:
“A school that never fails me. A school that shows me my worth every day. A school that believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself” (Skye Sigmund, Student)
“Before attending Green Valley, I didn’t understand the importance of education. But this school has opened my eyes to endless possibilities. This is without a doubt, the best school in the nation.” (Ryan Paluzzi, Student)
"Green Valley High School has changed my life. The staff and teachers are very nice and caring. My grades and attendance have improved ever since coming here. This is probably the best school I've been to and I'm excited for what the future holds." (Tanner Yanez, Student)
"The GVHS staff is caring and has helped me socially. I look forward to coming to school now." (Anderson Litel, Student)
"GVHS provides a welcoming, safe, supportive and helpful environment that allows you to express yourself. My focus can be on my academic success here." (Hannah Berry, Student)
Colleen Thomas, an English Teacher, stated, “Students at Green Valley High School have the opportunity to overcome any obstacle which may have inhibited them from succeeding in their past. Whether they have been held back by influences outside of school, focus in the classroom, norms in the curriculum, social anxiety, or disability; each and every student individually receives the necessary tools they need to achieve their goals at graduation and beyond. More importantly, we as a whole family, students, teachers, and staff, support one another through the steps in this process, striving to help develop an admirable and prepared 21st century generation.”
Continuation high schools offer an alternative, accredited high school diploma program for students 16 through 18 years of age or older. Students enrolled in continuation education programs are often credit deficient or in need of a flexible schedule due to employment, family obligations or other critical needs.
Green Valley High School was named a 2018 Model Continuation High School by California State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson.

TYLER DAVIS SCHOLARSHIP
23 days ago
Tyler Davis American Hero Scholarship
In June of 2012, Green Valley High School lost one of our own "Hometown Heroes" to an IED while fighting for our country in Afghanistan. Tyler Davis, a Specialist in the US Army, was honored and remembered by thousands of community members who attended his memorial service and/or lined the streets of Yucaipa, Calimesa and Beaumont to view the funeral procession.
Tyler, a 2010 graduate, is remembered by the Green Valley community for
his contagious smile and positive outlook on life. Tyler joined the
U.S. Army after graduation not to become a hero but instead to lead a
life of meaning and purpose. Tyler left a deep impression here for the
commitment he made to earn his diploma and the tremendous maturity he
demonstrated as he made plans for the future.
At the start of the 2012-2013 school year, Green Valley High School established a scholarship fund to continue to honor and remember this "Hometown Hero." Green Valley students who have distinguished themselves through hard work and dedication will have the opportunity to be awarded a scholarship in his name.
The scholarship will be awarded to a student(s) who will be continuing their education
in one of the following fields:
- Fire Fighter
- Other service oriented careers
To donate to this scholarship fund, you can contact the GVHS office at (909) 790-8580 or send a check made out to Green Valley High School at 35948 Susan St., Yucaipa, CA 92399.
We at Green Valley High School, thank you for helping honor this true American Hero and the students at GVHS.
