Present at the campus quad of the school, at 26250 W. Valencia Road in Stevenson Ranch, were more than 600 students, parents, administrators and representatives of government officials.
The school’s principal, Dave LeBarron, thanked those students involved in helping prepare the schools, the faculty and staff, and myriad others who had assisted in making the school a reality.
LeBarron, speaking after the formal presentation, said his goals include “building relationships with the community and providing a vigorous and relevant curriculum.”
The city of Santa Clarita is very honored to be here,” Mayor Bob Kellar said. He gave those assembled some advice that had been passed on to him: “The three elements of success ... are education, education and education.”
