From the Principal

Welcome to Del Mar High School, "Where Second Chances Happen". We are excited to provide an alternative educational opportunity for the students of the San Gabriel Unified School District.

For those you unfamiliar with our school, here are a few things you may not know.

Del Mar is fully accredited through the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and we received a six year term of accreditation. Last year we were recognized by the State of California as a Model Continuation High School. Our school services 80 to 100 students per year who are in need of an alternative academic placement. Over 95% of our students are here voluntarily and will graduate on time with their senior class.

At Del Mar High School we have many activities and opportunities for our students. They are able to join our Peer Helping and youth outreach program that teaches our students how to be effective peer mediators and who also work with students at Jefferson MS. The ASB and Yearbook programs give students an opportunity to create school activities; from Movie/Game Nights to our Thanksgiving Feast and barbeques. Students with a competitive nature can be involved with our athletic teams that compete against other continuation schools in the San Gabriel Valley Continuation League (SGVCL). Students can compete on an academic level as well on our History Day team. We are the only Continuation School that has sent students to the California State Finals in this program and yearly our students do very well against traditional high schools. In addition to our Movie/Game Nights, pizza lunches and Ice Cream Fridays, our students are able to attend the Prom and Grad Night.

Del Mar is a family school where students, parents and the community are highly valued and our students, while overcoming many barriers, succeed daily. We are small but mighty and we invite you to come and see our school any time you like.

Del Mar Students Visit Museum of Tolerance

On Friday February 27th, our students took a field trip to the Museum of Tolerance. Students toured the facility for three hours and were able to speak to a Holocaust survivor Dorothy Greenstein, who escaped the slums of Poland as a child. On  ACT Wednesdays we are studying and discussing Tolerance and Bullying. The trip the museum will help to   visually and emotionally enforce some of the topics we are discussing. A big Thank You to the San Gabriel Education Foundation (SEF), who paid for the bus and entry fees to the museum.

Below are photos of the students and staff who attended as we ate lunch in a nearby park and of our students with Mrs. Greenstein.

Peer Helping Class

Del Mar's Peer Helping Class is currently training for their upcoming outreach to Jefferson Middle School students. Under the guidance of Mrs. Rosental, Del Mar students are trained to mentor their Del Mar peers who would benefit from a "student to student" interaction and to do outreach  to students at other schools who would benefit from student interaction. The program is a tremendous resource for not only the Del Mar participants but for the students they serve. We are very proud of this program and the commitment Mrs. Rosental has to training Del Mar students to help others!
