After feedback last year, the school in its continuing quest to be the best it can be has introduced a bridge program for the incoming freshman a week before school officially starts. Three days of mini-high!
From their note: “We are pleased to host a freshman bridge program on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, August 29th – 31st. From 9am – 12pm, we will walk students through an orientation to the learning community of Art & Design HS. Students will have the opportunity to meet their classmates, teachers and staff members, ease their transition and facilitate their first days of school.

Needless to say, we urge all freshman parents to take advantage of this bridge program to help your child ease into the new challenges in high school.
We’re hearing that the school’s mid-summer mailings have been arriving at the more than 1400 families that comprise our wonderful student body. This includes over 400 new freshman!
The contents of the mailing include PupilPath instructions, a welcome letter from Principal Ureña, upcoming important dates, our own PTA Welcome letter and solicitation, and most importantly, your child’s upcoming class schedule for 2017-2018. Be sure to carefully read this schedule! If you spot any errors or surprises, be sure to reach out to Ms Johnson ASAP. The sooner the schedules are finalized the better.
We’re prepping this new website over the next few weeks. It’s been a labor of love and are hopeful it will be informative for all of you.
