Good Morning Citrus Hill Hawks,


It’s with great pride that I report that the mock trial team won its fourth round and our record is now 3-1. We advanced to the next round and we will be competing against the powerhouse Martin Luther King high school this Wednesday at 6 p.m. In the Riverside County Courthouse:  THE BATTLE OF WOOD ROAD, II!!!!   We made school history on Saturday by defeating, Centennial High School RED team to advance to the Elite Eight for the first time. 


We continued our tradition of excellence Saturday when the following three students received Blue Ribbon Awards representing outstanding performances in a role:

Sarah Picazo:   Bronze medal for her portrayal of Art Expert Jamie Sardegna

Armani Baktyary:   Silver Medal for his portrayal of Dr. Marty McCulloch, wealthy art collector and Art History Professor

Adriana Ramos:  Gold Medal for being the best Court Room Clerk out of twenty-eight schools; some coming from as far as Blythe.


This is the third consecutive year that our Mock Trial team has won top honors in this competition, and the  most ever won in a single competition We  have won six total Riverside County Awards Blue Ribbon awards to date, and three of them are first place. 


Thank you for your support.  Please congratulation the entire team for a job well done.

Dear Students and Parents,

Welcome to an exciting new year at Citrus Hill High School, where our motto is to Be The Change.  I am extremely humbled and honored to have this opportunity to serve as your new Principal. I have many experiences growing-up and living in this great community. They are the reason I have worked hard and continue to work hard for students, staff, and this special community.


Citrus Hill High School is a Comprehensive High School where 97% of our seniors passed the CAHSEE and received diplomas in 2014. Citrus Hill truly offers something positive for just about every student. Students enjoy attending this great school, Citrus Hill has the highest attendance in the district for secondary schools.  I encourage all students to get involved in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities during their high school years.  As a result of student dedication and sacrifice, combined with adult expertise and direction, Citrus Hill High School has many outstanding programs.  Academically, our CH Scholars program offers the most challenging curriculum to our most gifted students with 100% of the Scholars seniors getting acceptance to  4-year universities. Also the AVID program continues to help students reach their goal of higher education with over 96% of our AVID seniors getting acceptances to 4-year universities.


We also have had an increase in the number of students taking Advanced Placement (AP) classes and the overall pass rates of all AP Exams continue to improve.  More specifically, in 2013-14 the amount of AP Courses taken was increased by 34%. These are some of the most rigorous college level courses offered.


Furthermore, we offer excellent Band, Dance, Theater, Clubs and Cheerleading programs as well second to none Athletics. Among some of our special recognitions include:  our Drama Program has received awards through Drama Teacher Association of Southern California, our Robotics Program received first place in the Robotics Competition,  our Aquaponics Program received the Golden Bell Award, and our Football Program won CIF, again.  


At Citrus Hill High School, we are committed to offering the best experience for all students.  This year, our motto remains the same: BE THE CHANGE.  We will practice this by staying focused on our clear vision: 


  • Our shared purpose is to be the best high school for our community by providing our students the finest in rigor, school culture, enrichment, innovation, intervention and preparation.


  • Our shared values include:
    • Focusing on the things we can control.

    • Building respectful, supportive, collaborative relationships with students, parents, and colleagues.


  • Our shared goals include: 
  1. Citrus Hill High School will earn a 6-year WASC Accreditation.
