I am honored and privileged to be the Principal at Sylmar High School. My name is James Lee and I have served in the Los Angeles Unified School District now for 25 years. During my tenure, I have worked at many different locations.  I can sincerely say that Sylmar High School has been the most rewarding experience of my career. Sylmar is a unique community with a rich history. I myself am a resident of Sylmar and send my children to Sylmar area public schools. Therefore, I am personally vested in ensuring Sylmar High School is safe and welcoming.


During the past four years, we have made much progress, becoming one of the highest performing schools in the Northeast San Fernando Valley.  I am excited about continuing our collaboration with teachers, staff, the community and parents to further enhance our academic programs. I have an open door policy so parents are always welcome to visit at any time.
