A Message from your Principal

Winter/Spring 2024 
Hello Bulldog High School Families, 
I am pleased to report that our students have demonstrated commendable growth in both academic and extracurricular pursuits. The collaboration and dedication of our teaching staff have played a pivotal role in fostering an environment that promotes learning, creativity, and personal development. We have seen noteworthy achievements in various areas, from academic achievements where over 100 students have earned a recognized industry credential in Rise Up to notable accomplishments in sports, arts, and community service.

As we move forward into the next three months, students are reminded of the importance of maintaining focus and dedication to their studies. Consistent attendance, active participation in class, and seeking support when needed are key components to their continued success.

Parents, you are kindly and respectfully encouraged to remain actively engaged in your child's education. Regular communication with teachers, monitoring academic progress, and providing a supportive home environment contribute significantly to a student's overall well-being and success. Additionally, please be mindful of your student's guidance counselor as a point of contact. Senior parents it's important to make sure you are maintaining contact to ensure your student is meeting graduation requirements.

In terms of academic focus for the next few months, we will be placing a heightened emphasis on teaching strategies that encourage high levels of engagement in class. These priorities align with our commitment to providing a well-rounded education that equips students with the skills and knowledge needed for future success. The school is also focusing on preparing students for the OST tests in April by completing biweekly CRS (state-approved checkpoints) to monitor student progress and provide data to teachers to improve instructional outcomes.

  • April 16 and 17th 9:45 a.m., ELA II Testing
  • April 23rd - 26th, and April 29th All Other OST Tests. 11:00 a.m. Start time all students
