Mission

AMPS – John Henry High School (JHHS) seeks to provide a rigorous college preparatory education and character development program that will prepare students from underserved communities to succeed in college and beyond.

Curriculum & Instruction

JHHS offers tutoring services for all students and has two on-site college advisors to serve the various needs of scholars and help each scholar track their progress toward college preparation. JHHS’ courses are aligned to the California A–G college preparatory standards, and more than 90% of the 2019 graduating class were accepted to four-year universities.

Culture & Safety

JHHS believes in developing every scholar both academically and socially and utilizes a structured character development system called Proactive and Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS), which focuses on preventative and positive behavior choices and restorative practices. JHHS also offers a Family Staff Team (FST), which is composed of staff, community members, and parents, which seeks to improve school culture. The FST meets regularly to make recommendations regarding programming, educational activities, supplemental activities, and expenditures for programs at JHHS.

Programs & Activities

JHHS is proud to offer a wide variety of extracurricular activities for students, including after-school tutoring, student government, clubs (such as coding, science, and dance), and sports. JHHS also offers basketball, soccer, and volleyball. Throughout the year, JHHS hosts events where parents can also participate, including Math Night, a Posada, and much more. Additionally, JHHS has an ongoing communication system with parents, which includes school outreach, personal phone calls, memos, and emails.
