Moreno Valley Community Learning Center opened in 1994 to serve students in 7th through 12th grades that were expelled from Moreno Valley Schools. The school uses a district as well as state standards curriculum. The school provides students with a second chance to earn their high school diploma in a structured learning environment. The majority of the students were expelled due to discipline issues. The population of the school is diverse with the student body being 59% Hispanic or Latino, 26% African American, 8% White, 3% Islander Pacific, 1% American Indian and Asian.
Since the school focuses on students achieving their high school diploma the amount of extra curricular are slim. Parents are very happy that the school is providing their children with a second chance. The teachers and staff understand the needs of students and work to ensure that the needs of each individual are met while maintaining a safe and caring learning environment.
The majority of students are glad the school and teachers are working with them to help them succeed. A few wish they could return to their school but are doing much better now in the small classroom environment.
The Academic Performance Index showed the school achieved a 57-point increase in academic growth to 405. The statewide goal is 800. Even though this figure is below the statewide goal, parents and teachers are very proud of the increase.
The California Standards Tests is used to learn if students are mastering core subjects. The various tests are given to 2nd through 11th grades in English, grades 2nd through 7th are given tests in math, and science tests are administered to students in grades 5th, 8th, and 10th, while history tests are given to students in 8th and 11th grades.
The results of students passing the exams were not available at the time of this writing.
The California High School Exit Exam tests 10th graders mastering skills in English language arts and mathematics. Students at Moreno Valley Community Learning Center showed marked improvement with 36% passing the English exam with the previous year only 25% passed and in math 38% passed.
For students having a hard time conforming to rules and policies set forth by the district, the school is doing a wonderful job of providing students with a quality education. If you are wondering if the school is right for your child, you should take a visit.
