Meet This Week's Spartan Scholar of the Week!

For the Week of 10.17.2016: This week’s Spartan Scholar of the Week is Juan Molina, a 12th grader in our Math-Science Magnet. Juan is a two sport scholar athlete, all the while maintaining honors status for graduation. Juan has worked hard, taking Advanced Placement courses during his collegiate career to prepare himself for the university level. He is a quiet leader in the classroom, and assertive on the field. Juan works well with all of his classmates and teachers to gain accolades in the classroom. Juan is a true Spartan by showing how to achieve academic goals while participating in extracurricular activities. Way to go, Juan! For this honor, our scholar's name and photo will be placed on the marquee and on the home page of our web site all week. In addition, our scholar has received a special Spartan Scholar Medallion, a ticket to Northridge Skateland, a Sylmar limited edition tumbler, a delicious macrobar, and a free meal from Marie Callender’s Bakery.

Attend Today... Achieve Tomorrow!

At Sylmar Charter High School, attendance matters! We are learners today, so that we can be leaders tomorrow! We expect all students to be present at school at least 96% of the time, which translates to no more than seven absences for the entire school year! We understand that there may be times when students will need to be absent from school. Please read our attendance policy below for more information on our attendance systems.

Seniors - Our 2016-2017 Senior Attendance Policy Is Now Available!

All Class of 2017 seniors, as a condition for participating in the Graduation Ceremony, must have a record of good school attendance during their senior year. Good school attendance will be determined by the guidelines established in our Senior Attendance Incentive Program and will affect participation in the ceremony and senior activities. The Senior Attendance Incentive Program begins on the first day of school, August 16, 2016, or the first day the student enrolled into our school. All absences, both excused and unexcused, from that day forward until the end of the school year will be counted for the Senior Attendance Incentive Plan. Please click on the link for the details!
