Robertson High School Named a Model Continuation High School for 2023

Robertson High School in Fremont Unified School District (FUSD) was named a 2023 Model Continuation High School by the California Department of Education (CDE) on February 14, 2023.

Robertson was among 37 schools honored in 2023, and will retain the designation for three years. Robertson was designated a Model Continuation High School in 2020, 2017 and 2013.

“We are proud of the Robertson staff, students and community for their work to once again be designated a Model Continuation High School,” said FUSD Superintendent CJ Cammack. “This designation underscores what we know about Robertson: it provides an outstanding environment for its students, both academically and socially. I congratulate Principal Salvador Herrera, Jr. and the team at Robertson for their professional excellence, and thank them for their unwavering dedication to our students.”

The Model Continuation High School Recognition Program identifies and recognizes continuation schools that use exemplary instructional strategies, flexible scheduling, and guidance and counseling services.

Continuation schools provide a high school diploma program for students ages 16 through 18 who have not graduated from high school, are required to attend school, and are at risk of not completing their education. Across California, over 430 continuation high schools serve approximately 78,000 students.

“The efforts of teachers and administrators at our Model Continuation High Schools provide students with the social support and goal-setting skills that they need to succeed in the academic setting and in their lives after high school,” said State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond in a February 14 press release.

In October 2022, Robertson was named a Model Professional Learning School by Solution Tree for its sustained success in raising student achievement. It was among approximately 200 awardees named in 2022 in the United States and Canada, and the only continuation high school to earn the honor.

The 2023 California Distinguished Schools will be honored in an awards ceremony in April 2023.
