Message from Principal

Hello Students, Parents and Guardians,
The new school year is just around the corner, so begin to mentally prepare yourselves for another year of academic growth. My first year as Cholla Principal has been filled with great experiences. I am excited to see what the new year will bring!

If you are a returning student, we want to welcome you back. If you are an incoming freshman or new to Cholla, I want to be the first to welcome you to the Charger Family!

I know that the faculty and staff are committed to raising student achievement for ALL students for the 2023- 2024 school year. We need a commitment from you the student body as well. It is very important to place personal pride in everything you do during your time here. This will be your opportunity to take advantage of some great programs that will better prepare you for life after high school.

We wish you a successful school year full of personal and academic growth! Be safe and enjoy the remainder of your summer and be ready to work August 3rd! Make sure you are on time to every class every day. Be on the lookout for registration information.

Best Wishes,
Cesar Miranda
