Welcome to Valley Center High School's
Home on the Web!

Hello and welcome to Valley Center High school, home of the Jaguars.  Valley Center High school is a California Distinguished school.

This year marks our 16th year and we are very proud of the achievements of our current students and alumni in both the academic realm and our extra-curricular activities.

With the support of our dedicated community, VCHS has been able to build memorable traditions such as pre-game bonfires, pep rallies, lunch time activities, and a successful positive reward system.  These traditions and our success with extra-curricular events have helped create a positive environment on campus that promotes academic success for all students.

The academic success of our students has resulted in 4 major accomplishments: A CAHSEE pass rate of 89 in math, and 88 in English, as well as, a cohort graduation rate of 97.  That is well above the state average and ranks in the top 5 of San Diego county schools.  An API that has increased from 667 to 817 in the last 10 years and finding the success that our alumni are experiencing in the work force, major colleges and universities throughout the nation and are alumni’s appointments to our nation’s military academies.

To help support our academic success, Valley Center High school is committed to offering a wide variety of extra-curricular opportunities such as video production, musical theater, jazz band, dance, ASB clubs, dances, after school enrichment program and a full array of CIF sports.  Students who participate in these activities learn valuable life lessons that will help them be successful in future endeavors.

Throughout the last fifteen years, many of these programs would not have been possible without the tremendous support from the Valley Center and Pauma Valley communities. 

On behalf of the school district, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who supports our programs.  Your support provides our youth with the great experience we call “Jaguar Pride,” which fosters an invincible spirit that will enable our students to face the many challenges that lie ahead.

In closing, I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our web page and gain a better understanding of what it is to be a Jaguar.  I will leave you with an adage we have at VCHS that describes how we as Jaguars look at all areas of campus life, “Winning is not a sometime thing, it’s an all the time thing.”


Ron McCowan, Principal
