The students have arrived with a new approach to their education and the seniors are motivated more than ever to graduate with their class. Our goal now is to maintain this momentum and to support the students in the pursuit of their ambitions. The staff is committed and we welcome three new educators to our team.
Our new campus supervisor, Laura Gallardo, is a South Bay native who comes to us with many years of experience. She has worked for the City of Torrance as a specialist at the ATTIC TEEN CENTER, and she plans and organizes special events throughout the city. Laura started out as a day care provider and preschool teacher, and earned child development certificates in college. Laura easily connects with students and we are happy to have her on our staff.
Our new RBLA teacher, Alayna Albert, grew up in Southern California and returns to us after earning her Master’s in Education from National University. Alayna previously worked at Shores and RBLA as an instructional aide, and has experience teaching at a high school in Long Beach and at an alternative charter school in Watts. Alayna pursued teaching after realizing that “Teachers had the biggest impact on youth and that education has the power to change lives and communities.” We are thrilled to have Alayna back and she has big plans for RBLA. She has high expectations for students and will provide the instructional rigor necessary for our students. Look for an upcoming spotlight issue on RBLA.
Also returning to our campus is school psychologist, Kelly Six. Kelly earned her B.A. from UC Berkeley and her M.A. from Loyola Marymount University. Kelly has worked at Shores and RUHS, and she already knows many of our students. Kelly is exceptional and we are excited to have her back.

Welcome to Redondo Shores High School (RSHS). We are a continuation high school located in the Redondo Beach Unified School District. Redondo Shores is WASC accredited and offers UC approved courses enabling graduates to be eligible for the CSU/UC system.

We offer a personalized high school diploma program for students who desire an alternative to the comprehensive high school. RSHS is a credit recovery program whereby students can catch up on their credits and graduate early or on time by focusing on four classes at a time. Students enrolled at RSHS can complete 20-30 credits every four to nine weeks. Students taking concurrent classes through a local community college and So Cal Roc are eligible to earn more credits.
RSHS offers a blended educational model. Our students have the option of taking textbook based courses, on-line courses, or a combination of both textbook and online courses. Redondo Shores provides opportunities for ALL students to achieve their academic and career aspirations, and become successful and productive citizens. Our students are encouraged to tackle current and future challenges and to develop social and global awareness, civic responsibility, and personal growth so they will be active and informed members in the 21st century and beyond. Student programs are personalized and designed to meet the goals, interests and learning style of each individual student.
