General Information

Regular Program:
This program is designed to accommodate students who do best in high school classes with teacher-directed, standards-based instruction. Each day, a student receives 270 minutes of instruction, and attends classes on a rotating block schedule. A student is enrolled in a minimum of six classes plus an academic enrichment homeroom. Success in completing credit deficiencies is dependent on student willingness to complete take-home and/or individualized instruction classes, as well as enrollment in Work Experience, Riverside Community College or the county’s Regional Occupational Program.

The majority of LPHS students access this program. A typical student schedule includes three to four academic classes, one to two electives and a homeroom class. That student would likely also have take-home portfolios assigned as homework.

Several student groups for students in the regular program foster social, cultural and personal growth. Our Associated Student Body (ASB) and Ethnic Advisory Council (EAC) groups help build student interest and increase student enrollment.

Independent Study:
This program is offered to students experiencing extenuating circumstances which inhibit their ability to attend school daily. These students meet weekly with fully credentialed teachers who design a standards-based, individualized workload within the parameters of district graduation requirements and student weaknesses and strengths.

The intent of Independent Study is not to serve students over an extended period of time, but rather to provide a means for students to continue their education when personal difficulties arise. Students return to their home school or enter an LPHS program as soon as they are able. Students who do not find success in Independent Study are counseled to register in another LPHS program or return to their home schools. A maximum of 45 credits may be earned each semester in this program.

Academic Learning Center:
This program allows a student to work at his own pace to complete classes by fulfilling course requirements set forth in each Credit Recovery Portfolio. Two or three credentialed teachers are available to answer questions and assist students toward their goals of high school graduation. Students attend 180 minutes in their daily ALC classes as well as completing 20 hours of homework each week.

This rigorous course of study, with Credit Recovery Portfolios that strictly address state standards, provides students the opportunity to return to their home school, matriculate into our Regular Program, or another program, and graduate from LPHS. This shorter day schedule is beneficial to many students who do not function well in a traditional classroom setting, who have jobs or personal and/or family concerns. Once students have recovered the majority of their credits, they are counseled regarding transferring into the LPHS Regular Program or returning to their home schools. A maximum of 45 credits may be earned each semester in this program.

English Language Learners:
English Language Learners (ELL) are co-enrolled with students in all programs. LPHS teachers have been trained in Specially Designed Academic Instruction in English (SDAIE) to meet student needs in all of our programs. In addition, students who are not yet proficient in English are placed in ELL classes and homerooms.
