I am very excited to start my second year as the proud principal at Ombudsman Charter Valencia and Hiaki Member Campus. I understand the importance of working collaboratively with our parents and community to enhance opportunities and offer supports for all our children. My door is always open, and you can always email me or call to discuss any concerns you may have.
Ombudsman has a long tradition of working with students who are committed to earning their high school diploma, some despite great odds. Many of our students have had to overcome obstacles in their journey here. Our focus is always on helping your student receive the instruction and support they need to be successful. We strive to ensure every student can walk across that stage on graduation day and receive their diploma. We are very proud of the 72 students who graduated in 2018 and this year we expect even more.
Our teachers are veterans, many having served Ombudsman and our community for years. We work collaboratively to pursue innovation in our classrooms. Two of our teachers have been acknowledged with Outstanding Educator awards. At Ombudsman we strive to cultivate a positive climate. Ombudsman schools are respectful, innovative, disciplined, and laser focused on student success.
With two campuses it takes a team effort and we are so fortunate to have Mr. Landon Walls as director of our Hiaki campus. Both Charter Valencia and Hiaki will give your student a positive, caring, supportive and encouraging environment. We know each of our students and will work with them to accomplish their goals. Our staff consists of adults who genuinely care about your children and are determined to be there for them. We are so very proud of who we are and welcome all of you to the Ombudsman family and to 2018-2019 school year.
Patricia Z Wood, Proud Principal
Charter Valencia & Hiaki Member Campus
