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 the 2014-2015 school year, as we will start this school year with the 9th grade Ag Academy.  We will also be offering West Hills College classes for our students to enroll and take during the school day as part of their daily schedule.  Technology will play a bigger role in the education of AHS students.  We are upgrading the technology that teachers will use in the classroom to enhance their teaching.   We will continue to stress the essence of instructional quality and reinvigorate the 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.  That we continue to build their knowledge, enrich and strengthen the self-esteem of students to the highest expectations to carry them into the matrix of their own unique place of their calling into 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
