• Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year at Colton High School! This school year marks the 127th year of serving our students and community; we look forward to continuing the traditions of excellence that have been established during our historic existence as Yellowjackets! We take great pride in providing the best educational experiences for our students and are excited to embark upon this new school year.

    This school year will be like no other, as we all have persevered through a pandemic and have learned so much about ourselves and the world we live in. I am excited about bringing our new learning into this new school year. It is our responsibility as adults to prepare our students to succeed in our global society. As such, I expect that we all seek understanding of each others’ differences. We must ensure ALL of our students have a safe and welcoming school environment to attend each day. This means that we will respect each other and the differences that make each one of us unique. 

    It is my expectation that our students will have a safe learning environment that will foster connectedness and compassion for each other. Acknowledgment, understanding, and celebration of the diversity of our students, staff, community, and guests will be a priority at CHS. We will continue to provide the highest quality education and services so that we can maximize our students’ opportunities for post-secondary success in college and/or career. We understand that we cannot do this alone and we encourage our families and community partners to support us in providing our students with nothing short of an excellent education. I look forward to this school year and celebrating all of our students’ successes and triumphs!
