School Description and Mission Statement (School Year 2020–2021)
Camino Nuevo High School No. 2 aims to provide an academically rigorous, college preparatory program that prepares students to compete for admission to four-year colleges. The ultimate aim of the program is to graduate students who are well-educated, and engaged in addressing the social justice issues that plague their communities. All students are held to the highest standards of achievement and supported by a dedicated community of teachers and administrators. Building upon the success of the elementary and middle school programs of its sister schools, CNHS No.2 provides a high-quality college-preparatory high school option for its students.
When new students enter into CNHS No. 2, they are acclimated to our program with academic advising though iConnect and graduation path planning with site leaders. The high school program also utilizes many of the same programmatic components that have made the Elementary and Middle schools a success, including a college-going culture of high expectations, high quality core instruction including authentic literacy and conceptual math practices, a relevant curriculum that employs best practices for English language learners, and innovative programs to foster genuine partnerships with parents at the high school level. Our instructional program focuses on increasing rigor and full implementation of the Common Core State Standards, while infusing the importance of social justice, character education, and a college going culture to meet the needs of the whole child.
Furthermore, CNHS No. 2 maintains a small school environment with the capacity to serve 480 students. In comparison to larger schools, small schools have been shown to produce more favorable student attitudes, positive social behavior, better attendance, lower dropout rates, and positive interpersonal relationships that support academic success. We firmly believe that students have a much greater chance of academic and social success in this type of academic setting. All CNCA schools strive to create a culture of care for each individual student. We believe in teaching the whole child and using differentiated small group instruction to inspire students to self-define what motivates them to learn.
We maintain an unwavering commitment to providing high-quality educational opportunities to the students of this community and continue to work diligently to continuously strengthen our educational practices and achieve our mission of preparing students to succeed in college and beyond.
The CNHS No. 2 campus is distinguished by a number of exceptional offerings, including a college- preparatory instructional program that ensures all-student access to A-G coursework, Advanced Placement classes, and curricula designed to support students’ social and emotional needs. Our course sequence is backwards planned from the demands of Advanced Placement courses, so as to adequately prepare students for the demands of college and career. Teachers design rigorous Common Core standards-based curriculum with authentic reading and writing at its core across the content areas.
Conceptual math, science and technology coursework provides students the 21st century skills they need to succeed. In addition, project-based learning is used strategically to prepare students with the academic skills needed for college and career. All of the instructional practices that are currently employed among the existing CNCA schools are continuously refined and balanced against emerging educational research to strengthen how we serve the whole child on the K-12 continuum.
We have also established a partnership with our local community college, Los Angeles Community College to offer college courses to our students via the concurrent enrollment program. Classes are entry-level college courses, each granting students three transferable college credits. LACC offers classes the courses at our school site, and CNHS No. 2 provides students books and other needed instructional materials to ensure all-student access to the courses. This helps ensure our students are not only ready for college level coursework, but also prepared to complete college in four years.
