Principal’s Message

Welcome to a new and exciting school year at EOC.  As the Director of Alternative Education, I strive to make sure every student is provided with a safe learning environment where students are supported by a dedicated staff that focuses on ensuring academic success. We strive to create a culture of success where students gain a sense of pride and belonging as they prepare for their future.

With the partnership of our parents and the community, our focus is to support students in overcoming the unique challenges they have faced and move them toward graduation, and to develop the skills they will use to be successful in their plans after high school.  We are committed to developing relationships that are based on trust and respect so that students feel valued as we support them in reaching their potential. We aim to develop students to become lifelong learners who are critical thinkers prepared for college and career.

I look forward to a successful year for all students.


Hector Valdez, Director of Alternative Education
