School Mission

The El Modena High School Mission Statement:
We ensure all students' right to free and appropriate public education, as well as their right to learn in an environment where the potential and importance of every individual is recognized.

We teach students living in a technological society to access information, think critically, and make reasoned judgments.

We promote acceptance for all within a multicultural community, teach resiliency and adaptation in the face of change, and foster a sense of teamwork that promotes members working together to meet the needs of others

We strive to help students develop their respective skills and talents, build positive self esteem, and establish high expectations.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Students:

Welcome to the 2015-16 school year at El Modena High School! School will begin for all students at 8:08 am on Wednesday, August 26, 2015. At that time, all students will report to designated classrooms for class schedule distribution, before reporting to their first period class.

Included in this packet is a schedule indicating the dates and times students are to complete the registration process. Registration is scheduled for August 13th and 14th for freshmen, August 17th for seniors, August 18th for juniors, August 19th for sophomores. Please allow one to two hours for the entire process, which includes the verification of classes, collection of forms, issuance of identification cards, and opportunities to purchase items such as yearbooks, locks, and P.E. clothes.

Students are highly encouraged to take advantage of their scheduled appointment date and time to ensure a smooth beginning to the school year. Those who must miss the registration process will turn in forms and complete registration on the first day of school. Please carefully review all of the enclosed information and complete the necessary forms, as directed. Please note that one check, made payable to El Modena ASB, may be written for nearly all items. Proof of payment for online orders will also be accepted.

School pictures will be taken at registration for all students, free of charge, so we will have a picture for the yearbook and the ability to issue an El Modena High School identification card. The purchase of additional picture packages is optional.

Note: There is one issue that could negatively impact your student’s registration process. If your student owes fines for damaged or lost school property (textbooks, ID cards, etc.), he/she will be prevented from registering until said fines are paid in full.

Please feel free to call the school at 714-997-6331 if you have any questions or concerns. The Main Office will be open most of the summer.

Dr. Dustin Saxton
