Chino Hills High School, abbreviated CHHS, is located in Chino Hills, California and is one of the four regular high schools in the Chino Valley Unified School District. The school was established in 2001.

CHHS is a comprehensive school serving a very economically and socially diverse student body from three cities in the Chino Valley. The school has shifted its focus toward smaller learning communities, as its size continues to grow.

History

In the early 2000s, the Chino Hills area was growing at a very rapid rate. Nearby Ruben S. Ayala High School was nearing 4,000 students and voters approved Measure M, a bond initiative to relieve overcrowding and build a second high school in Chino Hills. The first graduating class finished in 2005.

In 2009, the CHHS Schools for Schools club, a nationwide organization that works with Invisible Children organized school dances, book drives, and mobilized students to donate more than $10,400 and 18,000 books to Anaka Secondary School. The funds went to a new laboratory and classroom block for CHHS' sister school in Uganda.[1]

Facilities

The campus was completed in 2006 and includes a 450-seat theater, a large stadium, two gymnasiums, and six computer labs. A wood shop is used for theater set design class. Facilities also include designed-to-specification ceramics, video production, theater, band, cooking, and art classrooms.

Students

The student population is fairly diverse demographically, and very diverse socioeconomically. Students come from some of the most wealthy and most disadvantaged areas in San Bernardino County. The demographic breakdown is as follows: 5% African American, 20% Asian, 35% Hispanic/Latino, 40% White. In recent years, the population of Asian American students has risen drastically.

Approximately 15% receive reduced lunch, and more than 30 languages are spoken by CHHS students.

Academics

Chino Hills High School offers 16 Advanced Placement courses, where 33% of students are enrolled. The school is attempting to re-configure its scheduling so that more AP classes can be offered as a result of high demand.

4 foreign languages are offered at Chino Hills High: Spanish (1, 2, 3H, 4 AP, 5 AP), French (1, 2, 3H, 4 AP), Japanese (1, 2, 3H, 4 AP), and Mandarin Chinese (1, 2, 3 H, 4 AP). After graduation, approximately 54% attend a four-year university; 1% join the military, 3% attend technical college and 42% attend a community college.[2]

Based on standardized test scores, the school was awarded an Academic Performance Index score of 819.[3] Based on overall school performance, the school was recently awarded a six-year accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
