HUMA: 160 Filipina(o) - American Heritage

This course explores Filipina(o)-American heritage, drawing upon the complexities of its indigenous history to educate and to enrich the identity of Filipina(o) - Americans today.  The experiences, perspectives, and contributions of Filipina(o)-Americans across gender religion, class and sexual orientation lines, will be discussed.  Emphasis will be placed on the resistance to colonization, including the resilience of Filipino culture that has endured various waves of oppression.

Class will be focusing my class on the social justice impacts of Filipina(o) Americans in the United States.


ACHS has put a new policy in place for our school's parking lot. Students are no longer allowed in the school's parking lots during school hours. This includes during passing time and during lunch periods. This policy is in place to ensure the safety of our students and our campus.


Juniors and Seniors that are eligible, 2.0 grade point or higher, still have the rights to leave campus during lunch, but they are not allowed to just hang out in their cars or the parking lot.


Our board, faculty and staff welcome you to many joyful learning experiences for your child.


The consistent vision of our Board of Trustees is 


"Transform Lives By Instilling 21st Century Skills and Inspire Lifelong Learning in Every Student."


Thank you for your commitment to work together so we all can best serve our students to achieve this vision.


Our students are making great progress, yet there is more work to be done. This year, the Board added a fourth goal to ensure that social-emotional learning and healthy living are integrated system-wide. We are fortunate to have amazing parents and generous community partners dedicated to developing well-rounded and empowered students.


Here are the academic goals adopted by the Board of Trustees for this school year.




1. Students will graduate college and career ready.

2. Staff will provide equitable access and opportunities to close the achievement gap.

3. Students will master 21st century skills.

4. Develop educational programs that support healthy living.


On behalf of the Board of Trustees, thank you for your commitment to transform and inspire our students.


Here's to a joyful and productive year!
