Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year! As the Principal at Pershing Continuation High School, it is an honor to have the opportunity to serve you. It is my desire to work with parents, students, staff and community members to foster student achievement and provide a positive, supportive environment for all school members.
At Pershing, our small school setting provides an alternative for high school students who need additional support in earning their high school diploma. Some of our students stay at Pershing for a semester or two to catch up on needed credits, while others remain to receive their diploma.
In this era, it is commonly recognized that education is a lifelong process, and Pershing aims to prepare students for success in post secondary education, their choice of career, and in the community at large. This starts with providing the students a positive, structured environment focused on continuous improvement, academic excellence, character and caring.
For our returning students and parents, thank you for your hard work and support for our program. I welcome you back for an even better experience. For our new students and parents, welcome to our community. We’re excited to have you and look forward to working with you.
Finally, for our community partners, including Storyland/Playland, the Fresno Elks and the Community Food Bank, we look forward to working with you this year!
