Points of Pride
Last year 99% of scholars graduated with the requirements needed to apply to Cal State and University of California campuses. Alliance Simon Tech has been recognized as a top high school by US News & World Report. The mission of Cindy and Bill Simon Technology Academy High School is to create 21st-century learners through individualized scholar-centered instruction that makes academics both personal and relevant for every scholar. To do this, we will use the Alliance hybrid learning model that incorporates a blended curriculum, multimedia instruction, and digital content. Moreover, our scholars will have solid character and strong critical thinking/collaborative skills. These skills will create socially responsible and globally-minded citizens that are an integral part of the Watts community and beyond.
