Principal's Message

July 2017


Welcome to Canoga Park High School!


I am proud to serve in my third year as principal at this historic school, and I embrace the school’s motto - “Be Strong” – in the classroom, in the community, and in life. I am also a CPHS parent! My son graduated in 2017 and my daughter is in the class of 2021.


I was born in the San Fernando Valley and attended LAUSD schools, then went on to earn degrees at Harvard and the University of California (Berkeley). Like the educators I had during my K-12 education, I am committed to maximizing the potential of each and every child. I know the path to an elite education as well as a fulfilling career; and my goal is to share my experience with your child so they can realize their own dreams. 


We offer a personalized education where students have the opportunity to excel academically while receiving a well-rounded high school experience. We have two new magnets - Engineering, Environmental & Veterinary Science (EEVS) and Communications, Arts & Media (CAM). We also have a vibrant AVID program and Newcomer's Academy. 



2017-18 will be an exciting year:

  •     Three year visit from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC)
  •     Continued improvements to our $5 million Digital Media & Video Production Complex
  •     Construction of Engineering Lab through a $1 million grant for Career Tech Education (CTE)
  •     Grand opening of the Hunter Performance Center for our student-athletes
  •     Return of Boys and Girls Wrestling
  •     Hosting of the first Canoga Park High School Drone Exhibition (Spring 2018)


We are also very excited to offer CPHS students a tremendous opportunity - 25 FULL scholarships to Cal State Northridge!  

Canoga Park High School is the only LAUSD school to have this kind of agreement with a major university and your child is eligible simply by attending CPHS. 


Please schedule your tour today. Call 818-673-1341.


Can you smell what the Hunters are cookin’?
