Bill Manes High School Mission and Vision
The mission at the San Pasqual Valley Alternative Education Center is to provide a high quality standards based education in an alternative setting from the comprehensive high school so that a student can improve his/her basic academic skills and successfully return to graduate from the comprehensive high school or graduate from the center. To achieve this mission we will:
- Provide standards based instruction and materials.
- Develop an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) for each student.
- Allow a student to earn credits at an accelerated pace.
- Provide a safe and orderly environment for student learning.
- Promote respect of self, others and property
