Arena Alternative/Virtual High School is located in El Segundo, California and is part of the El Segundo Unified School District. Arena High School is designed to provide an on-line learning environment for students with customized life goals or needs intent on accelerated learning, credit recovery, health issues, dual enrollment or those simply looking for a smaller school setting while ensuring a curriculum encompassing differentiated instruction to meet the needs of our students.
We are a WASC accredited school that offers two (2) Common Core embedded curricula for students either a) wishing to earn A-G type credits who are interested in attending a University of California, California State University, out-of-state or private school, or b) wishing to earn a diploma, move out into the workforce after high school with the possibility of pursuing further education at a community college.
Our staff of two (2) fully-accredited teachers alternate in the classroom and provide ongoing support to facilitate both the classroom students and the virtual students as well. Students enjoy access to field trips, guest speakers, electives such as Yoga, Healthy Living, Art and Organic Gardening as well as college and career counseling through the El Segundo High School counselors. We value our partnership with each family with an active School Site Council and recognize the essential role played in a student’s education and success. Our mission is to produce educated and productive citizens capable of competing in a global, 21st Century society.
