LearnBoost welcomes Calvine High
Calvine High School is a continuation high school located in Sacramento County, California directly next to Elk Grove, California. It is one of three fully accredited continuation schools in the Elk Grove Unified School District.
Calvine gets its name from the California Vineyard Company, a huge grape growing enterprise of the early 1900s, located east of Bradshaw Road. Calvine Road leads from what is now Highway 99 to the land belonging to the company. Calvine was the outgrowth of two smaller high schools. They were Omochumnes High, with its Miwok Indian name, located near what is now the Education Center, and Pioneer High, which had been at two different locations during its lifespan.
Calvine students have participated in many curricular activities such as Marsh Madness, which was a youth leadership program. This program helps train Calvine students to mentor elementary school students on all aspects of existing natural resources. Some other activities that Calvine students experience are things like “In a Blink of an Eye” which shows students what can happen when teenagers participate in illegal street racing; which is the loss of one's life. Another activity that students participate in is the trip to the nimbus fish hatchery where students observe the final stages of salmon migration.
Calvine students participate in a rigorous service learning program using nearby areas for environmental studies. Students learn in a non-classroom environment while taking part in community enhancing projects fostering real world learning.
The school currently employes eleven teachers and ten other staff members.
The school does not have a uniform policy, but enforces a dress code for all students. Students choose to attend either morning or afternoon sessions depending on their personal needs or schedules.
Calvine High School has a "Pathway to Success", which provides a unique educational experience for students, from the safety of the campus, to the learning environment, the rigor and breadth of the instructional programs. All aspects of the school contribute to providing students with the skills they need to be scholars, responsible citizens and productive workers. The main goal is that by the end of the school year all 12th graders will pass the California High School Exit Exam and will be college or career ready.
