San Dimas High - Academics

Academics


San Dimas High School takes pride in its wide range of academic classes. From AP to Special Education, students of all levels are successful. SDHS curriculum is largely college prep including a variety of AP courses. Intervention classes for reading, EL and writing use the Language! and Language Live! program. These classes, as well as math intervention classes, are designed for 9th and 10th grade at risk students and 11th and 12th grade students that have not passed the CAHSEE. Students make up course work at night school or through our online credit recovery program (OdysseyWare). Every student completes a senior project, the San Dimas Connection Project. The project begins with community service in grades 9, 10, 11 and 12. Students collect and reflect on work samples for every class each of their years at SDHS. The project culminates with a presentation in the senior year that includes work samples from every year of high school, a resume, a job search, and a discussion linking the student’s life, learning and future plans.
 
Students from San Dimas High School have attended such prestigious universities as Stanford, UCLA, Cal, Brown, MIT, and Cal Tech. We are proud of our students and their accomplishments!
