High School Name to Be Selected, Community Forum to Be Held

The OUHSD School Board is slated to select a name at their regular meeting, Wed., June 22.  Here are the committees recommendations:

  • Adelante Academy High School:  Adelante can be translated to mean “forward” or “onward”.  It can also mean “ahead”, “out in front” or simply “let’s go”.
  • Valle Alegre Academy High School:  Valle Alegre has an english translation of “Happy Valley” or a bit more loosely “Pleasant Valley”.
  • Vanguardia Academy High School:  Vanguardia is spanish for Vanguard.  The word gets it’s roots from the military vanguard (head of an army), but is used more metaphorically today as meaning “first out”, “in the lead”, “avant-grade” or “cutting edge”.
