A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Dear AVHS Students, Teachers, Staff and Families –
Greetings and welcome to Arroyo Valley High School, the home of the Hawks! It is with great honor and excitement that I introduce myself, Bernardo Valenzuela, as the Principal at AVHS. In each of my roles and leadership positions, I have sought to ensure the success of each student and the school, by providing the best instructional and extracurricular opportunities and supports possible. Similarly, it is my number one priority at AVHS to ensure that every student receives the most well rounded education possible and is prepared for both College and Career.
A well-rounded education means outstanding instruction from top-notch teachers, as well as extracurricular opportunities and supports that enable students to develop character, cultivate passions, and explore the world outside of the classroom. As the Principal at AVHS, I am committed to ensuring that student needs and interests help shape instruction and extracurricular opportunities. Through this shared commitment to learning, I am excited to see students engaged in on one of our seven certified academies, scoring the winning point on the field, performing in the musical, or any other area that peaks student interest and passion.
Most importantly, an excellent education is not possible without the great collaboration of students, parents, and staff. I have had the privilege of getting to know some of the amazing students, parents, and staff at AVHS, while also learning about the rich school history and success. One of the greatest takeaways from these conversations has been the immense enthusiasm and pride for the school and community. It is through that same enthusiasm and pride that I look forward to becoming an integral part of the community with my own family and working with each of you to continue the great successes at AVHS.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, and ideas that you would like to discuss
