The District's well-prepared, dedicated, and highly qualified teachers and support personnel are second to none.
The Chaffey Joint Union High School District Board of Trustees are steadfast in the belief that "Nothing is more important than student learning and their achievement."
Our daily purpose encompasses our commitment:
"To provide student learning, and ultimately their achievement, of the prescribed curriculum that takes place in the classroom under the direction of the teacher." The Chaffey District supports this daily act. We realize that our efforts uniquely influence the future of our community and of this nation, and we are passionate about doing whatever it takes to prepare students to be successful and contributing citizens of the 21st century.
The Chaffey District has provided a quality education for high school students in the area since 1911. As the District continues to grow and progress, we are poised to meet the challenge of providing the finest quality education possible for every student.

Principal's Message

Joshua Kirk
Rancho Family, 
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! As the new principal of RCHS, I cannot wait to welcome back  all our students to in-person instruction this fall, especially our incoming 9th graders, the Class of 2025! We know that we have many students who will be coming to campus for the first time and we can’t wait for them to experience the Rancho Love from Cougar Country! Expect to see plenty of energy out in front of the school as we kick off the school year and welcome our Cougars to Rancho Cucamonga High School!
Please look for your summer mailer through the US postal service to arrive around the middle of July.  Please read all the documents enclosed, and make sure that all the forms in the registration packet are completed and bring them to turn in on our scheduled registration days which will begin the last week of July.  See the schedule below for dates and times.  For parents/guardians of incoming freshmen, we invite you to attend our Parent Information Meeting in our auditorium.  This presentation will take place on the same day and time as your freshmen student(s) orientation and will focus on informing parents on how they can engage with our school and staff as well as how to help support your student(s) academic success during their high school career and beyond.  
Parents and guardians, your role in your student’s development is a huge part of their success. Your involvement helps to build a healthy partnership with the school. We encourage you to consider getting connected with some of our committees and parent groups such as our ELAC, AAPAC, and Booster Clubs!  For more information on these opportunities and more, please reach out to Mr. Jeremy Hansen, our Assistant Principal of Achievement.
Understanding the challenges we all have endured over the last year plus, we have been working on our plan to meet our students where they are.  This means a robust level of support in academic interventions, remediation and enrichment.  In addition, we are providing additional resources to support students social and emotional needs as well as continued intentional efforts in the work of equity to celebrate and support our beautifully diverse school community in our curriculum, school programs and student achievement.       
Finally, beginning this school year, the hours for all schools in the Chaffey Joint Union High School District will shift to 8:30 a.m.-3:20 p.m. Friday hours will be from 9:30 a.m.-3:20 p.m. This shift to a later start time is to prepare for the legally mandated late start for California high schools in 2022. If your child will need transportation to arrive to and from school, please fill out the transportation application on our website.
As always, please feel free to contact us with any questions and enjoy the rest of your summer. 
Rancho Love,
Joshua Kirk
