Avenal High School
Mr. Juan Ruiz

Dear Parents and Students,


My name is Juan Ruiz, and it is an honor and a privilege to be the Principal of Avenal High School.  I would like to welcome you all to another exciting school year at AHS.


We are excited about this 2015-2016 school year, as we will be implementing an additional career pathway academy that will focus on the environment and conservation.  We will continue to offer West Hills College classes for our students to enroll and take during the school day as part of their daily schedule.  Technology will continue to play a large role in the education of AHS students.  We continue to upgrade our technology that teachers use in the classroom to enhance teaching and learning.   We will continue to stress the essence of instructional quality which reinvigorates academics.  This cannot be done without the help of the parents, students, staff, and the community.


I will do my best to ensure that students continue to be challenged.  We will continue to build their knowledge, enrich and strengthen self-esteem of all students to the highest expectations, and ultimately carry them into the matrix of their own unique calling in society.


Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be a part of your child’s life and entrusting their care to Avenal High School.  I look forward to meeting each and every one of you as the school year progresses.


Have a TERRIFIC year and GO BUCS!



Juan Ruiz
