Dear Reid Students, Parents and Community:
I would like to introduce myself; my name is Jeffrey M. Cornejo, Ed.D. I have been with Long Beach Unified School District since 1987 as a Teacher at Franklin Middle School. In 1991, I moved to Millikan High School as an Assistant Principal. In 2000, I performed my first stint at Will J. Reid High School as the Principal. I was also the Principal of the Guidance Opportunity Centers and the Transitional Ninth Grade High School. It was at this time that the district decided to start Renaissance Career Academy on the former Reid High School site. In 2002, I was reassigned to Millikan High School as Co-Principal. In 2016, I returned to Reid for a second time as Principal. I consider Reid to be the best kept secret of the LBUSD, and it is my intention to not keep it a secret any longer.
Reid’s mission is to ensure a safe, caring, and nurturing learning environment where each student is challenged daily to meet high academic and social expectations by a team of dedicated professionals working in collaboration with parents and other stakeholders. Our goal is to transition our students into comprehensive campuses or graduate our students as soon as possible.
The students at Reid High School receive the services of a well-prepared and dedicated staff. Nine teachers offer a wide variety of curriculum. The staff is highly trained and sets high standards of achievement for their students. Our class sizes are smaller than a comprehensive high school. For students who wish to earn credits faster, homework and variable credits are offered.
Reid has a certificated academic counselor. The counselor has multiple opportunities to conference with her assigned students regarding their individualized high school educational plan and beyond. The students will receive guidance in attendance improvement, behavior modification, and character education, acceptance of diversity, academic success techniques, careers and technology. The classified staff enthusiastically serves the students of Will J. Reid High School.
The traditional high school campus does not work for all students. Our goal is to create a safe and nurturing small environment for our students. We want to have a place where these students are given every opportunity to receive a high school diploma.
Proud to be a Raptor,
Jeffrey M. Cornejo, Ed.D.
