Theatre productions, Open Mic nights and student-led choirs, De La Femme and De La Dudes, are open to all students. Find more information about our media, visual and performing arts programs here.

Once the carpool list has been distributed, it will be each family’s responsibility to arrange a carpool for their student(s).

Challenge Exams

Students wishing to challenge their placement in Math, Science or World Language are welcome to sit for challenge exams in the subject(s) of their choice.

FinalForms Medical System Registration

FinalForms is the new web-based system we are using to track medical history, contact information and release forms for all of our students. All incoming freshmen must have a completed FinalForms enrollment by August 1, 2019. Students involved in formal summer activities, such as student leadership training and CIF sports team conditioning and practice, will have earlier due dates as determined by their program director or head coach.

Note: You will receive an email from FinalForms prompting you to confirm and complete your registration. If you do not receive an email, check your spam folder. If you still do not see the FinalForms email, please email support@finalforms.com.

Freshman Class Council

If you are interested in applying for Student Council, please complete the application and submit it by Wednesday, May 1, 2019.

Selections will be made by interview with the Associated Student Body Council in early June. You will be assigned an interview time based on the number of applications received. Summer Student Council meetings will be optional; however, Student Council Camp on August 2-4 will be the first required event. We will hold a parent meeting in the summer to provide more information regarding this camp.

If you have any questions, please contact Stephanie Roybal, freshman moderator, or Rose Ann Holmes, student activities director.
