Mrs. Rebecca Handzel

Dear Fairvalley Parents and Guardians,

I am pleased to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year and introduce myself as the Principal of Fairvalley Continuation High School.

At Fairvalley, we value strong, positive relationships with students because we know this foundation prepares our students to become lifelong learners in our rapidly changing, multicultural society. Our mission is to create a culture that emphasizes academic rigor and student learning in an environment that supports each individual’s unique emotional, social, and academic needs. Fairvalley focuses on instilling our students with critical thinking skills, a global perspective, and a respect for core values so that they are equipped to tackle academic, personal, and emotional challenges. Fairvalley Continuation High School is WASC accredited and a recognized Model Continuation High School.

Fairvalley Continuation High School offers small classes, caring educators, and a trimester schedule that allows students to accelerate their credit recovery and get back on track. Students can also enroll in various CTE pathways, Work Experience, Adult Education, and Dual Enrollment courses to earn additional high school and college credits. Many of our students can return to their comprehensive high schools ready to graduate!

Our students are offered multiple leadership opportunities, including district-level advisory committees. We highly value the support of our parents, guardians, and community. Those interested are invited to participate in our PTSA and School Site Council (SSC). Please be on the lookout for information regarding parent/guardian workshops for FAFSA, Community College Information Nights, and more.

We look forward to a fantastic year and thank you for your support. We could not do it without you.

Go Falcons!

Rebecca E. Handzel
