Message from the Principal

Dear Community Members,

We’re offering some exciting new classes this quarter: Taiko drumming, advanced computer skills classes, delicious cooking, and a way to make money doing Voice-Overs. Career Training has always been an important part of the Adult School’s mission. Check back in our winter 2019 quarter for info on the licensed cosmetologist and barber apprenticeship program.

See you in class!
Dave Hoshiwara, Principal
