El Puente High School Has Applied for Model Continuation High School Status

El Puente has continued to evolve into an institution of quality and effectiveness in preparing students academically and vocationally in order to enter into post-secondary learning or the workforce. After EPHS' full WASC accreditation, all components were in place to meet the eligibility requirements for CDE Model Continuation High School designation. The application was screened by the CDE and reviewed by a panel of field experts at the state level. A review team conducted a visit of the EPHS campus on November 29 through December 1, 2021 in order to validate the information contained in our application and make a final recommendation to the CDE. This is truly an historic time for El Puente High School and for the students and parents of the community of Firebaugh. It is very important to have a high-quality alternative learning environment that meets the unique needs of every student and their families.
