2018-2019 Piner Student Handbook


Principal's Welcome for 2018-2019: The Piner High School Vision statement comes from Piner High School’s staff and it captures what the staff wants the school to be going forward into the future. To get there, students must also understand and care about the school’s vision for itself. Students must play their role in helping the school reach its goals. The vision statement starts by saying that Piner High School will be a caring place. The staff at Piner High School wants students to be successful and healthy. We want students to know that our daily efforts are about building an atmosphere of respect and concern for the lives of students and their families. And, in response, we want our students to care about each other and our staff. This leads to a welcoming school community where all individuals at Piner take care of each other. This goal takes shape in some of our support services at Piner, including Social Advocates for Youth counseling, a Family Engagement Facilitator for school to home communication, a Teacher on Special Assignment that supports struggling students, and a Restorative Response Specialist for helping students make amends for poor behavioral choices on campus. Of course, the vision statement then goes on to say that we engage students in learning that is meaningful. Piner High School is an academic institution and one of its main roles is to make sure that students are learning. Just as it takes participation by students to help make a caring community, students cannot learn at the highest level without active involvement in their own learning. This means that students need to take advantage of the multiple academic opportunities that Piner High School offers. These opportunities range from assistance to those who are academically struggling, to exciting programs that cannot be found at any other high school. Some of the academic supports offered for students include:

  • After school tutoring
  • Student Success Team and individual counselor meetings
  • Cyber High credit recovery
  • Freshman Transitions Program

The academic programs at Piner include many different pathways such as:

  • Arts and Communication
  • Business, Computers, and Information Technology
  • Culinary Arts
  • Geospatial Technology
  • Health Science and Biotechnology
  • Early College Magnet Program

Let me highlight two of the programs above. The Early College Magnet Program provides students with the chance to take classes at the Santa Rosa Junior College for free, with transportation and books provided. The Freshman Transitions Program focuses on helping students successfully transfer to a high school environment while focusing on goal-setting and preparing for high school graduation and beyond.

Furthermore, Piner High School continues to develop its emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education. The symbol of this focus is the science and technology building on our campus, which we call the SPARQ building. Students will take part in classes that stimulate their thinking in these areas and they have the ability to pursue a STEM Certificate of recognition. The STEM Certificate can lead to an advantage in registration at our local university, Sonoma State University.

As any student can see, Piner High School is a rich place to learn that provides lots of support. Working together, Piner High School will be one of the best high school experiences you can hope to have. We look forward to your upcoming year with us and know that if you get engaged, it will be a great school year.

Sincerely, Tim Zalunardo, Principal

STEM Cafe's occur the 2nd Thursday of each month.
