The school administration and faculty welcome you to our website to provide our school community and prospective parents with an overview of AGBU Vatche & Tamar Manoukian High School.
We are looking forward to reaching new heights together as the new school year approaches. Our commitment at MHS is to provide an intellectually challenging and safe environment that will empower students to develop their innovative thinking skills, to become creative problem solvers and be inspired scholars who are prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century. As the great educator John Dewey posited, "if we teach today's students as we taught yesterday's, we rob them of tomorrow." Hence, our team of educators work steadfastly to prepare our scholars for their future.
Over the years, AGBU Vatche & Tamar Manoukian High School has shown growth in various aspects. As our student numbers and facilities have expanded, so have our academics, extra curricular activities, school programs and resources.
Since its inception in 2006, AGBU Vatche & Tamar Manoukian High School has been a student-centered educational institution where we support and motivate student effort through interactive classroom instruction, after school office hours, and school wide activities that encourage student participation and development of leadership qualities. Our commitment to encourage and nurture the academic and personal development of every child commended to our care is at the foundation of our philosophy. Through cooperative and mutually supportive relationships students, parents and teachers have come to form a trusting and intimate school community that remains in place even after graduation. We believe when it comes to a child’s future success, no door should be closed and no opportunity left unexplored.
AGBU Vatche & Tamar Manoukian High School’s curriculum is California standards based and is implementing the Common Core State Standards. It has been designed with the goal of helping students master grade and subject level curriculum while developing young minds, fundamental skills, critical thinking, creativity, character development and a genuine love for learning in a supportive and caring school environment. The Spartan faculty and staff are committed to providing and delivering an exceptional educational experience for all students.
We thank you for your interest in our school and hope this web site will be useful as you plan your child’s future schooling. The pages that follow will hopefully serve as a vital link between our school and the community it serves, so that parents of continuing students as well as prospective parents are well-informed about the educational opportunities available for high school students at our school.
We invite you to get in touch with us at your convenience. We would be happy to meet with you, give you a campus tour and answer your questions.
