Principal's Message


   Welcome to the Middle College High School website! It is an honor to have the opportunity to serve this outstanding community centered around student success. It is my hope that after you visit MCHS’s website, you will leave understanding the positive environment we offer for our students to grow both personally and academically.  We are proud of the accomplishments of our students and staff and want to share that pride with all who visit us here on web. 

   As you navigate through our website, you will hopefully see that the students, staff and parents work hard to establish academic excellence as our school’s hallmark.  We are also proud of our extraordinary partnership with Santa Ana College that opens the door to higher education and educational opportunity to our students.

   However, we also understand that there are dynamic changes taking place in K-12 education and the world.  To stay abreast of these changes, we are working hard to provide our students with the cutting edge educational experiences it take for our students to be successful citizens in today’s global arena. 

   To that end, MCHS continues to provide effective academic programs as we transition to the new Common Core State Standards. Our teachers have already begun to align their instruction around these new standards that will complement the rigorous learning taking place in the college courses that our students take here at SAC.  In addition, we will continue with our outstanding AVID program that supports our students both academically and in preparing for college.  In June 2014, 100% of our seniors graduated with 47 of them graduating from SAC with their AA degree at the same time!  Approximately 93% of our seniors will be continuing their education at either a 4-year university or here at SAC in the fall!

   Outside the classroom, MCHS offers a wide variety of extra-curricular activities with many clubs and organizations, service community opportunities and school spirit activities.   Our very active ASB have plans for another spirit-filled year with club and class-competition activities. 

   As we say here at MCHS, “Feel the Magic” and invite you to do just that through our website.  Thank you for your visit and support.  We couldn’t do it without you!  2014-15 offers us a great and exciting school year! Go Wizards! 
Kathy Apps
