Message from the Principal

Dear Palo Alto Learners,

It is my pleasure to join the Adult School as your new principal. A new school year always brings energy and excitement to our classrooms. This fall, we’ve expanded our popular cooking and woodworking programs. What class is right for you?

See you in class!
Dave Hoshiwara, Principal
