Dear Hemet High Community; 


Hemet High School is truly a great school. It is a privilege to be part of the rich traditions of excellence that exist at Hemet in academics and co-curricular programs. I encourage all of our students to become involved with school activities, make a commitment to academic excellence, and be a contributor to the special spirit that exists on our beautiful campus.


We believe all students can achieve and succeed! We, as a professional staff, are here to make it happen. Academic achievement, student success, and campus safety are our highest priorities for Hemet High School. The staff is committed to setting high standards and maintaining the best educational environment for all students. As a staff, we are driven by commitment and excellence. We expect all our students to make a personal commitment to achieve, be involved in student activities, look for the good in all people, and make good choices.


The mission of Hemet High School is to prepare students to be opportunity ready.  That opportunity may be College, it may be Career and it may be undecided.  We want our students to graduate with the skills, knowledge and resources to achieve post-secondary success.  Over the past few years, Hemet High has been working at building a CTE (Career Technical Education) program, providing students with exposure, experience, and skills that are preparing them for post-secondary pathways.  We offer pathways in sports medicine, automotive technology, child development, culinary arts, medical assisting, cybersecurity, technology, multi-media, broadcasting and agriculture.  We truly believe that we offer something of interest for every student.


Hemet High is a great place! Our parents, students, staff, and community share in a special sense of honor and pride regarding the school. Students will always be encouraged to work hard, be positive, wear a smile, and be a contributor to the special spirit that exists on our beautiful campus.


We are Alive with Pride!
