Welcome to Monterey High School

Greetings Toreador Families and the Green Machine,

It is my honor to welcome students and families back for the 4th quarter and the home stretch of the 18-19 academic year.  I hope the Spring Break was a time for families to connect and recharge with one another.  This quarter is going to fly by and there is much to celebrate, much on which we should reflect, and much to still accomplish.  

It is my pleasure to let everyone know that over Spring Break, we received word from the International Baccalaureate that there were no matters to be addressed regarding our Diploma Programme visit, and that we have been officially named an IB World School for the Diploma Programme.  We are now officially an IB World School offering both the Middle Years and Diploma Programmes.  Congratulations are due to the entire school community as this is going to positively affect our school and every Toreador for years to come.  Thanks are due to the teachers, students and our IB Coordinators Nikki Ahrenstorff and David Swartz as this was an incredible journey.  Three years ago this school took on an ambitious task that would benefit all students in the Monterey High School community, and the authorizations of both programmes are validation for literally years of hard work.  We are now the only high school in Monterey County to be offering the IB Diploma Programme and also the IB Middle Years Programme. There is much work to do but we absolutely can celebrate this achievement.

SBAC testing in Math and English begins next week for all juniors, and in Science for Seniors.  This is an important time for our school to showcase all of the learning and progress our students have made over the course of this year.  Please discuss the importance of getting good sleep and nutrition during this time and also the importance these tests have for our school and students.  We will be making presentations in class over the next week reminding students of testing locations and times.  We appreciate partnering with you in this.

Open House will be held on April 18 at 5:30 pm.  It will be a showcase of events for all of our students with performances from the Jazz Band, Dance, Theater Arts, Athletics, along with the exhibition of our MYP Personal Projects.  We are excited to invite the greater community to the high school and to display the wonderful things that our students are accomplishing.

Finally, we would like to invite all Senior families to our graduation ceremony at Monterey Peninsula College on Friday, June 7th at 3:30 pm.  It has been a great year and we look forward to celebrating with everyone.  Good luck to you all for the remainder of the year!

Go Dores!
