For the second year in a row, US News Best High Schools in America has awarded Paloma Valley the Silver Medal. This puts us in the top 11% of all 26,000+ high schools in the nation. We are very proud of this designation. It has happened because we have dedicated teachers who set the standards high and we have students who are motivated to excel. The school has worked hard to create new pathways aimed at supporting all students after high school. We now have bio-medical, fashion design, engineering, computer-coding, and automotive pathways. We are working hard on creating additional pathways that meet the needs of future professions.

Paloma Valley also offers dual enrollment classes in English, Physics, and Sign Language. When students qualify for these classes, they receive college and high school credit concurrently. They must earn a “D” or better to receive high school credit and a “C” or better to earn college credit. We also offer sixteen different Advanced Placement classes challenging students on the journey to college.

The Perris Union District has also moved to a seven period day. Mondays and Fridays will be late start days with classes beginning at 9:05. Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday will have a 7:45 a.m. starting time. School is out at 3:10 p.m. every day. The seven period day allows students the opportunity to take the elective classes they may not be able to take under the six period system.

Our school population continues to grow. We are anticipating close to 3200 students learning on our campus this year. It is important that the students become involved in some extra-curricular activity. Paloma Valley offers twenty-three stellar athletic programs and a multitude of clubs. In spite all of the academic, athletic, and social activities occurring at school, the Wildcat atmosphere is calm and relaxed. Students and staff feel safe and free to participate in the various daily activities.

As you can see, there have been many new exciting changes and we hope that students will see a huge benefit from them all.
