Welcome to Centinela Valley Union High School District Independent Study School (CVISS). I am very excited about the new school year. CVISS has been relocated to the area near the Hawthorne High football field. This location is away from distractions and is very conducive to learning and helping Independent Study students overcome any educational challenges they face.
Our focus is on educating high school students grade 9 – 12 with an emphasis on obtaining a high school diploma, and in addition, preparing students for college, career, and life. Our enthusiastic and dedicated staff provide engaging learning experiences so that students develop knowledge and character skills needed to be successful.
I personally believe that all parents want the best for their children--they want them to be successful in school and in life. However, due to the many demands of life in this modern world, many working parents have very little free time to dedicate to their teenage children. I would like parents to know that now is a very critical time in the development of their children. Although as teenagers they may say they want more independence, parents should stay involved more now than ever.
I would like to invite all parents and caregivers to visit our school, and take part in helping us help all students live up to their full potential to obtain their high school diploma and prepare for college, career and LIFE.
I look forward to sharing more information with you as the year progresses and working with your child throughout the new school year.
