  • Communicating articulately
  • Contributing as a member of the community

Newcomb's API 914

The state recently released the API (Academic Performance Index) scores for schools, and Newcomb is very proud to announce that our API is 914!  Newcomb has exceeded the state’s goal of 800 and continues to rank among the highest achieving schools in the state.  Newcomb’s success is directly related to the collaboration, hard work and dedication of students, teachers, school staff, parents, business partners and the community.  Working together we can achieve great results for our children!

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Last night, the Board of Education approved a resolution to communicate to all families and students that the Board supports them and will do everything in its power to protect them regardless of nationality, immigration status, religion or other factors.  A copy of the resolution and a letter from the Board is attached.

Hello Eighth Grade Students and Families,

 

Results for this year's School of Choice applications for high school pathways will be available for you to review this Friday, February 17, 2017, after 5:00pm.

 

To see your results, log into ParentVue and select the "School of Choice" tab on the left, then follow the links.

 

To complete the process and confirm your selection, you must click on the "set intent" button to the right of the one pathway you are selecting, then click on the "certify" button at the bottom of the screen. When the process is complete, you will receive an email confirmation of your intent.

 

This must be done by the deadline, 11:59pm on March 1, 2017. Failure to do this final step will result in the loss of your acceptance to that pathway.

 

If you need assistance, you can find it in three places:

 

               1. Your LBUSD Middle School or K8 counselor.

               2. The Choice Helpline (562) 997-8306

               3. The High School Choice Office - 1515 Hughes Way

                       Third Floor (Open from 8:00am - 4:30pm, Monday

                        through Friday).

 

We thank you for your patience and congratulate the upcoming class of 2021 in taking the next step towards promotion to high school!
