Principal's Message

Dear parents and families,
Welcome to an exciting school year at City Honors International Preparatory School. I look forward to working with students, parents, community members and school partners to achieve our goals in developing students who will be college and/or career prepared in the 21st century, increasing student achievement, and promoting a supportive, inclusive and safe school community.  
City Honors has a rich history of excellence dating back to 2001 where it  first opened its doors on the campus of West LA College. Since that time, our school community has been dedicated to developing college- and career-ready (CCR) graduates who should be able to enter and succeed in entry-level postsecondary courses with the following: mastery of rigorous knowledge and skills in core academic courses; the skills and dispositions necessary to be successful in charting their postsecondary path; and, successful participation in postsecondary opportunities through advanced coursework (Advanced Placement, Cambridge AS/A - level courses, dual enrollment) as well as career and technical education, work-based learning, and other opportunities for exploring interests, aptitudes, and goals so that graduates can successfully navigate pathways that connect education and employment after high school.
Our high school team is committed to providing the best quality education for your child and all of our students. I am looking forward to an amazing school year in service to our students, parents, and community!
Warm regards,
Saba Araya, Ed. D.

CHIPS Physics Team, "Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust", Places 3rd in the 27th Annual American Society of Civil Engineering Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition

On May 1st, the American Society of Civil Engineering, held its 27th annual Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition LIVE on YouTUBE. The Annual Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition (PSBC) is an event for high school students that is hosted by ASCE's Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Bernardino/Riverside Younger Member Forums. The competition is a great opportunity to emphasize the benefits of pursuing higher education and careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics while promoting the engineering profession in our community. This year, there were over 25 teams who entered the competition. CHIPS, under the leadership of Bio/Physics teacher, Mrs. Costo, entered the competition with three teams. The competition was stiff! Thus, Team "Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust" had the third place overall winning bridge! Congrats to Mekides Danna, Edgar Diaz, and Maleah Rowe (Grade 11) and, of course, Mrs. Costo!
