Principal's Message

Welcome to Maywood Academy High School, home of the mighty Nighthawks.  It is my pleasure to be continuing as principal of Maywood Academy and the community it serves. 


This past year we achieved many accomplishments.  Our class of 2017 earned a graduating rate of 92%.  We had a WASC visit that gave our school a six-year accreditation with many accolades.  We experienced a great amount of success with our athletic teams and reached new heights. 


Here at Maywood Academy we believe that all students deserve a safe, healthy, and rigorous learning environment.  We have started Restorative Justice practices that focus on building community and restoring it when needed in a safe and respectful manner.  We have invested in counseling and mental health support and have partnered with community agencies to ensure students are healthy in mind and body.  Through an extensive amount of planning, reflection, and revision we have taken the necessary steps to prepare a curriculum that is rigorous and is equipping our students with many of the necessary skills needed in the 21st Century. 


As parents we know you have choices in selecting a school for your child.  We thank you always for trusting in us and supporting the work we do to improve ourselves on a daily basis.  I looked forward to continued success and welcome you to take part in “protecting the nest” at our home of the Nighthawks.
