Tracy High School, Home of the Saints, is a continuation high school in the ABC Unified School District. As an Alternative Education Program, we are proud to serve the communities of Artesia, Cerritos, Hawaiian Gardens, and east Lakewood. THS is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
Tracy has a student enrollment of approximately 250 students. We mainly serve 11th and 12th-grade students and a few 10th-grade students who are in need of our special programs. The Tracy High School faculty, staff and administration are focused on utilizing our core values, our rigorous and comprehensive curricula, and create a school environment to provide a safe, effective and supportive learning community where all students meet standards required to graduate and succeed academically, personally and socially.
Students are admitted based on referral from the comprehensive high schools including Cerritos, Artesia, Whitney and Gahr High Schools. Tracy High School students are at risk of not graduating and are typically 30 credits or more behind in graduation requirements. In our accelerated credit recovery learning environment, Tracy operates under a 9-week quarter system where students are able to earn up to 5 credits per class each grading period. There are four quarters per school year. Additionally, students may enroll concurrently in Adult Education courses as well as attend Summer School.
Tracy High School also has Career Technical Education (CTE) courses taught by industry professionals to focus on vocational/technical courses such as Medical Careers and Multi-Media. Other special programs include the Teen Parent Program, Opportunities Afternoon High School Program, Independent Study Program, and Bridges Academy. Both the Opportunities Afternoon program and Bridges Academy are held at the Cabrillo Lane campus. Independent Study is held at three different sites: Cabrillo Lane campus, Carmenita Middle School, and Lee Ware in Hawaiian Gardens.
Our dedicated and student-centered staff strive to prepare graduates who will connect their education to real-world learning and relationships as they become productive and successful members of society.
