With the start of the 2018-19 school year, the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD) introduced La Entrada High School’s (LEHS) new Hybrid Pathway. Designed to support high school students who seek an alternative to traditional classroom instruction, the Hybrid Pathway offers the important resource of daily interaction with educators, while still allowing students the flexibility of personalized online learning.
As a part of this pathway, students attend school for 10 to 15 hours per week on La Entrada’s small campus in Yorba Linda.
Beyond the classroom, Hybrid Pathway students are responsible for continued academic achievement with online curriculum. Students in the program have the opportunity to meet regularly with highly qualified teachers and an academic counselor during this time.
Pathway participants take no more than two or three courses at a time. Both college preparatory and credit recovery classes are offered as a part of the wide-ranging program. Similar to a traditional high school, Hybrid Pathway students are given many opportunities to academically collaborate alongside their peers in study groups.
For over 30 years, LEHS has afforded PYLUSD students the opportunity to customize their high school experience through an alternative educational environment including an independent study model. Complete with WASC accreditation and an extensive list of a-g CSU/UC approved classes, LEHS empowers its students through textbook, online, and now hybrid-style coursework that results in high academic achievement.
“La Entrada has always been an excellent option for students looking for a more flexible way to complete high school,” shared the school’s principal, Carrie Bisgard. “It serves students who would like a more flexible way to attend school or a different way to learn, but are also committed to quality education.”
For many years, PYLUSD has focused on expanding the availability of district-wide alternative educational opportunities in benefit of students’ unique needs. The addition of the Hybrid Pathway at La Entrada High School not only supports this focus, but it also exhibits the District’s commitment to preparing each and every student for success now and in the future.
