    We hope you are ready for the 2023-2024 school year.  As always, Citrus High School continues to be committed to school safety, supporting best instruction, and providing additional social-emotional and academic support for our students. 


    Citrus High School offers a credit recovery model that provides all students an alternative pathway to meet their graduation requirements while also providing grade level courses that prepare students for college, career, and life. Students that work through their individualized graduation plans can recover credits and transfer back to their home Comprehensive High School or stay with Citrus High School and graduate as a Jaguar.   


    We focus on differentiated instruction that is tailored to meet the needs of all students in preparing students to meet their academic goals, graduation requirements, and be prepared for college, career, and life. In the area of Career Technical Education, Citrus High School has a Building Trades and Construction Pathway that prepares students through OSHA and NCCER industry recognized certifications that prepare students for apprenticeships, entry into the Carpenters Union, or entry into Community College for advanced industry certifications. To support our students social-emotional learning we have Multi-Tiered System of Supports with two full time Counselors, Climate & Culture Specialist, and a Licensed Therapist. Citrus High School has school wide expectations that are founded in Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. We are also focused on incentivizing the school wide expectations through the implementation of PBIS rewards. Another way we engage students is through our participation in the Inland Empire Alternative Sports League with competitions in the following sports: softball, basketball, volleyball, and soccer. We are excited for what the 23-24 school year will bring and look forward to supporting all our students with meeting their college, career, and life goals.
