Principal's Message

Larry Rook
Ontario Jaguars,
Welcome back! We’ve missed you and are so excited to see you! Thank you for a great start to the 2023-2024 school year. Our staff and students are excited and ready to begin the year strong. With students back on campus, we will take the necessary precautions to maintain a safe and healthy environment for students and staff. 
Our commitment to ensuring your students are successful remain at our core, and stronger than ever. Making connections is critical to your success in high school. Get to know your teachers, join a club, try out for a sport, and take advantage of the many opportunities we have available at Ontario High School. Students who get involved tend to be more successful in their classes, know where to go for help when they need it, and feel like school is a safe and supportive environment.
As part of our mission to ensure that ALL students graduate ready for college and career, OHS continues to offer extended learning opportunities. We have Paper tutoring services, before and after school tutoring, RISE on Saturday, credit recovery, and enrichment classes during 0 and 7th period. Students and parents can also use Aeries, Canvas, and Parent Square to contact teachers, monitor attendance, and stay informed about academic progress in classes. Make sure to update your data confirmation information.
Jaguars, no matter the day or week, attendance is critical to your success. Make sure that you are following the bell schedule, attending class on time, participating in class discussions, and turning in your assignments. We encourage families to schedule off campus appointments after school to ensure students have the ability participate in class with little disruption to learning. 
We continue to strive for excellence in our programs and to provide our students with the best educational experience possible. The California Dashboard is our state’s school accountability system. As we continue to settle back into a regular school routine in our classes, we will continue moving forward with our data to better understand our areas of strength and our areas for growth. If you wish to learn more about our school’s data, please visit the CA Dashboard.
Thank you for your continued support and for partnering with us to bring about the best educational experience for our young Jaguars. Please follow me on Twitter @OntarioHS and on Instagram @ontariojaguars to stay connected to our school community! Together, we will succeed and keep our students on the “Path of the Jaguar” towards becoming College and Career ready.
