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 Getty Museum

On January 12th Del Mar students took a fieldtrip to the Getty Villa in Malibu.

The trip was intended to give our students a historical and cultural opportunity that they might not have the chance to visit. Here are some photos of our students at the Getty.

Thank you once again to the San Gabriel Education Foundation for making this trip possible. SEF continues to fund fieldtrip and enrichment opportunities for our students!
