Extra Activities

City Honors students are involved in several programs that enhance the instructional program of the school such as the UCLA Bruin Corp Vista Program, Northrop Grumman High School Involvement Partnership Program (HIPP), the Academic Tutoring Program (with local feeder schools), GATE, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Leadership class.

Students also participate in programs such as Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA), and the Women in Entertainment Mentorship Program.

Approximately 95% of seniors graduate and attend a four-year college or university (public/private), a two-year college, a vocational-technical career college, or a branch of the military.

In the best interest of students, the City Honors staff is dedicated to educating students. City Honors received a 6-year full accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

Since our last WASC visitation in 2007, we have added a media center/library, computer lab, and more classrooms wired to accommodate high-tech instruction, and access to online technology in all sectors of the campus.

A dedicated, skilled, motivated staff is committed to providing the best educational experience possible for all City Honors students.
