We Are In This Together
I am sure most of you have heard the saying “it takes a village to raise a child.” Here at Redondo Shores we pride ourselves on being a part of that “village.” When your children come to Redondo Shores we spend the time to ensure they grow not only academically, but socially and emotionally as well. Our hope is that by the time they leave us they will be prepared with a high school diploma to enter college or the world of work. Unfortunately, our time with them is limited, and we still need your support to ensure each child reaches his/her goals.
I am not only the counselor for alternative education, but also a mother to three boys and I know how busy life can be between working full time and supporting my children in their endeavors. This year, my oldest started 11th grade. As an independent teenager he doesn’t always want my support, advice or encouragement. As a mother, I want him to spread his wings and fly, BUT I also know that my involvement in his school life is still just as important as it was when he entered Kindergarten. I know many of you can relate to my experience. So how can you stay involved AND still give your child the space to spread his/her wings? Join our village!

Some of these include: Back to School Night (October 8th); SSC/ELAC meetings and Parent Education Nights. Check the Infinite Campus parent portal to view your child’s attendance and transcript. Communicate with teachers and staff to check in on your child’s progress towards meeting his/her graduation goals. Now is the time….we are in this together, and together we are a village!

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. Redondo Shores High School has been awarded the prestigious Model Continuation High School and Exemplary Program Recognition Awards from the California Continuation Education Association and the California Department of Education. Recently, RSHS received the 2013 Alliance For Healthier Generation Bronze National Recognition Certification; the first California continuation high school to receive this award.
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.
Redondo Shores High School received a six-year term of accreditation from the Accrediting Commission of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), the highest term of accreditation that the organization grants. This year we are completing our three year review.
