| We are very proud of Crescenta Valley High School. It is our belief that our school exemplifies excellence. Outside organizations have validated that belief. In 1999 and again in 2005 the school was designated a California Distinguished School. In 2000 Crescenta Valley was chosen as a National Blue Ribbon Award recipient. |
During the 2005–2006 school year Crescenta Valley received the Los Angeles Music Center’s BRAVO award as the outstanding visual and performing arts school in the county. In 2008, Los Angeles Magazine named Crescenta Valley High School one of the top twelve public high schools in Los Angeles. Newsweek and US News and World Reports ranked our school within the top 5% of American high schools.
| Our school focus is critical thinking. The challenge we face is assuring that all of our students master California Content Standards and that all of our students graduate from high school prepared to enter a four-year college. Research tells us that preparing all students to meet the entry requirements for a four-year college prepares students to succeed in any post-secondary endeavor. |
Our staff works with families to build in our students the 40 Developmental Assets as defined by the Search Institute. Research has shown that the more assets a student has, the better life decisions the student will make. The assets include support of family and caring adults, setting boundaries and expectations, constructive use of time, and developing a positive identity. Students are recognized for excellence in academics, improved performance, leadership, and community service.
