Welcome to California High School!

I would like to welcome you to the website for California High School. The mission of California High School is to “equip today’s children for tomorrow’s challenges." At California High School, we provide a challenging and comprehensive curriculum that offers diverse learning opportunities to equip our students with the skills necessary to be college and career ready.

In the classroom, we have a caring and effective staff that is dedicated to our students. Each day they work diligently to provide our students with challenging, engaging, and inspiring learning opportunities. Our students experience engaging and individualized learning through our school-wide 1 to 1 initiative that puts technology in the hands of each and every student. We embrace 1 to 1 not only as a way for each of our students to connect 1 to 1 with technology, but more importantly, the technology allows our students to connect 1 to 1 with their teachers.   

We offer our students an excellent instructional program on its own. However, the learning in the classroom is greatly enhanced by our exceptional extracurricular and co-curricular programs. Our community has blessed us with outstanding facilities and resources. Each day our students benefit greatly from these additional learning opportunities. We encourage our students to challenge themselves both in the classroom and outside of the classroom. A student’s high school experience only happens once. We want our students to take advantage of the top-notch opportunities that California has to offer and to build experience that will last a lifetime.

Please know that our students are worth any amount of my time and that I am always interested and willing to listen to your concerns, suggestions, and feedback. Please feel free to contact me at 573-796-4911 or email me at [email protected].

California High School is an outstanding educational institution due to the diligence and dedication of our students, staff, parents, and community. It is my sincere honor to be the Principal of this school and it is indeed a pleasure to work each day with the best students in the state of Missouri.
