Principal's Message

Dear Cougar Families,
Welcome back to another incredible school year at Rancho Cucamonga High School! We are thrilled to embark on a journey of learning, growth, and achievement together.  I want to share some exciting news and insights about our school's vision for the 2023-24 school year.
As we embark on the new school year, our vision is to ensure that “All students at Rancho Cucamonga will graduate college and career ready.”  In our efforts to make certain our students are college and career ready, we will continue to increase the number of students meeting their A-G requirements and decrease the number of freshmen failures. To achieve this goal, we have a comprehensive support system that focuses on individual growth, academic progress, and social emotional growth and development.  We understand the importance of collaboration between school and home, and we provide resources and assistance to both students and parents.
The collaboration among students, parents, and teachers plays an important role in achieving academic success for every student. I urge you to stress the significance of consistent daily attendance with your child, maintain regular communication with our educators, and consistently track grades using Canvas.  In addition to utilizing Canvas, it is essential that you have established your Parent Square account and installed the app to receive the latest updates and communications from our school. Through our collective efforts, we will work towards ensuring your child's success.
The California Dashboard provides a comprehensive view of our school's performance across multiple indicators, including academic achievement, school climate, and student success. It serves as a valuable tool for us to assess where we are excelling and where there is room for growth. I firmly believe that by working together with students, parents, and teachers, we can make strides towards improving in areas that need attention and building on our strengths.  
Thank you for your continued support and partnership in our journey to provide the best education for your children. Together, we can make a positive impact on their academic and personal growth.
Cougar Pride,
Azande Aikens
Principal, Rancho Cucamonga High School
