Welcome to Rialto High School
"When We Believe, We Achieve!"
Message From The Principal
Dear Knights and Knight Parents/Guardians,
Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! My name is Arnie Ayala, and it is my pleasure to begin my second year as Principal of Rialto High School. For those of you who are new to Rialto High School, my experience includes seventeen years as a high school teacher, activities director, assistant principal, middle school and high school principal. It is truly a privilege to serve Rialto High School, Home of the Knights!
We embark on this new school year with much excitement as we continue our traditional classes as well as the 21st Century Program for some of our freshman and sophomore students. One of our major changes this year is that ALL students will be starting their school day at the same time of 8:00 a.m.; we are confident that this change will benefit families and help improve attendance and punctuality.
Our goals for this school year are to maintain a safe learning environment, increase parent involvement, and student achievement. As we transition to the Common Core, we plan to make the 4 C’s (Communication, Creativity, Collaboration, and Critical Thinking) part of our daily instruction.
Our administrative team and entire staff endeavor to provide ALL students excellent instruction in the classroom as well as opportunities for involvement in career pathways, athletics, and extra-curricular activities that will enrich the lives of each student. I believe that ALL students can and will learn, and with your support, the instruction of our teachers, and leadership of our administrators, ALL of us can experience SUCCESS.
Our Parent Center has experienced a significant growth in the last year, and we welcome your participation and involvement, especially in our School Site Council (SSC), English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC), and African-American Advisory Committee (AAAC). I look forward to getting to know you during my quarterly “Coffee with the Principal” and special events such as our second annual “Take Your Parent to School Day.” We especially need and value your time and input this year as we anticipate our WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) visit in March 2015. Parents are an essential part of our school, its culture, and our accreditation process. You will be receiving upcoming information from my office regarding WASC and all the ways you can support our efforts and goals.
Thank you for your partnership and support. I have an open door policy, and I welcome your visits, input, and involvement as we provide for your student’s education and future.
Mr. Arnie Ayala.
