Principal’s Message:


John Swett High School is committed to excellence in our academic programs.  We have made tremendous progress dramatically improving our Academic Performance Index (API) this year to 770.  We are dedicated to the preparation of our students to succeed in the 21st century.  We recently were selected for the CAPE program to expand AP offerings at JSHS.

 Press Release:

“Congratulations!  In partnership with the College Board and Senator Ed Hernandez (D-West Covina), John Swett High within John Swett Unified has been selected to participate in The College Board’s new California AP Potential™ Expansion (CAPE) initiative. The initiative supports the California state law SB 532, passed on September 6th, 2011, which encourages all public high schools to offer at least five AP® courses.  John Swett High was chosen for CAPE because it was noted that there are currently fewer than eight AP courses being offered. Based upon each student’s individual PSAT/NMQST® score report, many students within your school population have strong potential to be successful in AP courses that are currently not offered at your school.”  This is great news for our school and community and was made possible by our dedicated school staff and high achieving students.

The JSH class of 1995 has planned their 20th reunion for summer 2015.
