Crescenta Valley High School



People often ask me, “How do you like working at CV?” My honest response is that I love this school—the students are articulate and respectful, the staff is passionate and committed, and the wider community of parents, boosters, and businesses are engaged and supportive.  Taken together, all these factors create impressively positive results in the lives of students, as multiple and continued awards attest:

  • California Distinguished School (1999 and 2005)
  • National Blue Ribbon School (2000)
  • Los Angeles Music Center’s BRAVO Award (2005-2006)
  • Los Angeles Magazine, top twelve public high schools in Los Angeles (2008)
  • Newsweek and US News and World Reports ranked top 5% of American high schools  
  • California Business for Education Excellence Honor Roll School (2013)  
  • Win Saw, GUSD Teacher of the Year (2014)
  • CBEE Honor Roll School (2014)
  • California Gold Ribbon School (2015)

Crescenta Valley High School’s instructional focus on critical thinking has staff and students well-positioned as Common Core Standards are ushered in to ensure students are well-prepared for success in college and career. 

CVHS values a balanced student life, and partners with PTSA, ASB and other community leaders and groups to highlight ways of finding and securing individual fulfillment and happiness, including asset-building.  Multiple and varied student clubs, most notably decorated and high-ranking athletic programs, contribute to a well-rounded and healthy student body.

As a school, we believe in continually moving onward and upward.
