SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, Calif .– A high school in the Lompoc area is once again honored as a California Continuity High School.
The California Department of Education has said Maple High School in Vandenberg Village, just north of Lompoc, meets the criteria to be considered a model school.
The California Continuation Education Association, or CCEA, took a virtual tour of the school to make sure it still met the criteria. Staff interviewed students, reviewed school programs, and analyzed other statistics related to the school.
âI cannot thank my staff, my students and my families enough. It is through their dedication and innovation that Maple has established itself as a model program. The visiting CAMC team called MHS a âlittle school with a big heart,â which is an accurate description of Maple, âsaid Laurel Ciervo, principal of Maple High School, in a press release.
âMaple High School works hard to provide a robust and diverse learning environment for all students. They tailor their approach to the individual and this method continues to show why theirs is such a successful program for our LUSD students, âsaid Trevor McDonald, Lompoc Unified General Supervisor.
The high school was originally considered a model high school in 2019. The school is reassessed every three years to determine if it still meets the criteria.
