A Welcome Message from the Principal

"Determination, DRIVE, Dedication"

Drive, Determination,  & Dedication

Dear Parents & Students,

Welcome to Shadow Hills High School and the 2018-19 school year. Shadow Hills High School has earned respect by setting high academic standards, high expectations, having a no excuses philosophy and on-going support to obtain maximum student achievement for every student. Our expectations for all students are that they will be empowered with knowledge so that they are all College & Career Ready.

Our vision at Shadow Hills High School is to foster a growth mindset in all of our students, encourage academic achievement, and promote global citizenship. We strive to develop critical thinkers who analyze the questions of today to create solutions for tomorrow.

This year our theme and focus is on being #3DKnights....focusing on our collective efficacy as a team encouraging academic achievement through Dedication, Determination and DRIVE!

Instruction will continue to focus on enabling students to demonstrate both numeracy and the literacy skills of reading, writing, speaking, and reasoning and preparing them to participate actively as citizens in a technologically advanced society.

Shadow Hills High School provides many academic and extracurricular activities. Students who become involved outside the classroom are more successful inside the classroom. We hope our students maximize their high school experience by becoming involved in our school's athletic and academic teams, visual and performing arts programs, and outstanding club activities. There are many to choose from and each student can find something that is of interest to them to make the high school experience engaging and rewarding.

We will also be working to streamline our behavior and learning expectations by incorporating Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) strategies on our campus. With that end in mind, we will continue to focus on our values that are the foundation of how we interact with each other. Knights have:

Respect—treat people the way you would like to be treated

Integrity—honest and having strong moral principles

Honor—high respect; esteem

Greatness— the quality of being great, distinguished, or eminent

Teamwork—collaborative effort of a team to achieve a common goal

We believe that these values will help you be successful in school, career, and life in general.

I am looking forward to seeing you as we begin the start of the 2018-19 school year! Follow me on Twitter at @SHHS_Principal for the latest news. Stop by and say hello when you see me on campus.


Mr. Gabriel P. Fajardo
