A Message from Our Principal
Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,
Welcome to the 2015-16 school year. 2014-15 was a great success for Corcoran High School. We maintained a very low suspension rate, saw a major increase in school spirit, triumphed with a number of East Sequoia league titles, and enjoyed several areas of academic achievement. These included seeing the percentage of students who scored a three or above on the AP test jump from 48% to 53%, and our suspension average maintained the 2013-14 drop of 70+%.
These are just a few of the successes Corcoran High School has enjoyed. We have set the bar higher for this year. We have been busy learning about Kagan structures, project-based learning, a growth mindset and personalized learning, and we are very excited to see the impact this will have on our students and academic achievement.
I want to thank our school families and our community for your continued support. It is with your help that our students thrive.
