ABOUT OUR SCHOOL

Morgan Hill Community Adult School (MHCAS) was established by Morgan Hill Unified School District in 1971. In that year, the district  authorized the Community Adult School to offer a high school diploma program, and this program was in place in early 1972. Over the years, we have offered a wide range of classes for adults, including adult secondary education, English as a Second Language, job preparation, classes for older adults, and community education classes.

 

OUR MISSION

Morgan Hill Community Adult School serves students by offering opportunities to acquire knowledge and skills for meeting their personal, family, educational, and employment goals, and contributing actively to the life of the community.

SCHOOLWIDE LEARNER OUTCOMES

These outcomes represent our school’s vision for the ways in which student will grow in skill and confidence. Our students will:

    • Set goals: Students learn to set short-term and long-term goals, including planning for employment and continuing education.
    • Acquire skills: Students develop academic skills and behaviors that support acquisition of subject-matter knowledge and prepare for continuing education and the workplace. Students grow in confidence and self-esteem, and learn the importance of positive attitudes for success in school, work, family, and social life.
    • Monitor progress: Students learn ways of measuring their own progress towards achieving their goals.
    • Effectively communicate: Students develop their verbal and written communication skills by participating actively in classes, expressing concerns, collaborating in problem-solving, and speaking openly about their life experiences and goals.
