About Us


Dear Citrus Families,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! We are excited to welcome you back to another educational, fun, and innovative school year.  Citrus has a rich history of academic excellence and cultural diversity.  At Citrus, we are committed to providing your child with the best academic experience possible.

We all have an important tole to play in your child's education. Together, we can create a partnership that meets the demands of all of our 21st century learners.

Citrus continues to be an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) certified school that promotes a college going culture. AVID is a program that helps train teachers to use proven practices and strategies in order to prepare students for academic success in high school, college, and later in their careers- especially students traditionally underrepresented in higher education. 

Citrus continues its work as a PBIS school (Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports) which is a proactive approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed to achieve social, emotional and academic success.  With PBIS, students learn about behavior, just as they learn other subjects. The key to PBIS is prevention, not punishment. As a Citrus Cougar, we continually strive for our ROAR expectations. We are RESPECTFUL, ORGANIZED, ALWAYS SAFE, and RESPONSIBLE. 

I look forward to meeting students and families as we begin the new school year! 

Best Regards,

Shayna Golbaf
