Dear Parents, Students, and Friends of Alhambra High School:
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year. It's hard to believe two months have passed since we bid farewell to our graduating seniors. It is now time to anticipate a season of new beginnings, rooted in the success of the past year and growing as we welcome new students and staff! The staff of Alhambra High School continues its strong tradition of service to our students. There are new hires working in many capacities alongside our returning employees. All of us are a resource for you. Therefore, please do not hesitate to contact us throughout the course of the year. Alhambra High School encourages parental involvement; this is one ingredient that enhances student achievement. Our mission at this school is to improve student learning, and we realize that goal has many facets. The school year will feature two important emphases: a one day WASC accreditation visit and implementation of the Common Core Standards. Both of these areas direct us to academic growth. Our staff and students will be collaborating in these endeavors all year long. I am truly honored to be the prinicipal of such a great school. Alhambra High School is known for its proud history and traditions. I wish a strong, productive school year for all, and when you see me around campus, please come up and introduce yourself.
Sincerely, Duane Russel
