El Colegio High School is the heart of a larger community vision of culture, arts, and education. By observing our students and community values, the atmosphere of the building is welcoming, safe, respectful and inclusive. Students and families from all cultures are respected and nurtured equally.

El Colegio is the cornerstone of a larger cultural and educational center that is an accessible gathering place for the community at-large. Our building is designed to encompass not only the school but also to incorporate space to be used by the community for ongoing arts and cultural programs.

Values around family and community also come to life in our school. We actively encourage family and community to be partners in our students’ learning, as well as to participate in cultural and arts activities in our building. Students and families of different cultures experience and learn from each other through school curriculum, cultural celebrations, parent meetings and other activities. In addition, students go into the community to improve their learning through community service, internships, and the creation of public art.
