My story


I chose a football as my item for a story. I did it because it always brings me many fond memories of my childhood. As I grew older¸ one day I realized how important this football was. It was able to judge men! It told me I wasn’t good enough or strong enough¸ it told me that I wasn’t as good as my peers¸ it was my own judge. This all changed on my freshmen year in High School¸ I learned there that is not natural skill or talent that made you better at the game¸ but it was something different:  the effort you are willing to give. Picking up a football means your willing to put in an effort! So here I am at Serra putting my effort in books¸ hoping to play in College¸ or better. I’ve learned who you’ve been isn’t who you have to be.

Principal Hill's Message

Dear Students and Staff,


As this year draws to a close, I desire to extend my gratitude to each of the students, staff, and parents for your warm welcome toward me and your willingness to work alongside of me in making this year such a success. I have found Serra to be one of the most accepting and positive places to which I have been. That does not mean that it is perfect; nothing is. Given that fact, I would rather be at Serra than anywhere else, and I know that most of you feel the same way. My hope is that the love and acceptance that I felt here and that I hope you have also experienced will remain with you wherever your path in life leads you and will add a positive light to the memories you have of this school even as the details of those memories begin to fade. I want you to look back fondly at your time here as a moment when you found common ground with students who seemed different from you at first, and you discovered that you were more alike than you might have previously thought. We are all human. We all have yearnings, challenges, hopes, fears, successes, and disappointments. But at Serra we realized that with the support of others whether they were friends, parents, teachers, or staff members, we could pull through. We could finish. We could realize our dreams. Go Serra!

Welcome Message from the Principal

"It is so gratifying to be able to offer such a fine school program! Serra is instructionally sound and also provides a smaller learning environment for students. Our class size averages 20 and the resulting level of engagement and accountability provides a rich and textured learning experience for all. Our enrollment hovers at 200 and  having students from the entire CUSD  enhances our diversity and sensitivity to a multitude of learning styles, interests, and needs. Our mission is to serve our students and  families with a cohesive and positive educational experience.

"We are an accredited high school, recently earning a full 6 year term of accreditation. We are a small school with a BIG heart! Please feel free to contact us to learn more about our program" (Rich Bellante, Former Principal of Serra High School).

These words, written by Rich Bellante who recently retired as Serra High School's principal, continue to ring true today. In many ways, Mr. Bellante is the father of the modern Serra High School program which received accreditation from WASC as well as state wide recognition as a Model Continuation High School during his tenure. Like so much of what Mr. Bellante brought to Serra, we intend to keep his welcome message posted here, prominently on our school's home page as a powerful statement about the benefits of a Serra education and a welcome to all who would like to enter here and learn.

Parent Portal Information

Parents are encouraged to create a Parent Portal access account, which will allow them to update student information in the District’s database, review student attendance by period and see an unofficial transcript of their child’s progress.

Information regarding creating a Parent Portal account can be found at: or by going to the district’s main web site and finding the Parent Portal link under Parent Links. Instructions for creating an account can be found by clicking here or by following the information that is available on the district’s website under the Parent Portal link.

Please note that 3 pieces of information are required in order to create the account.

  1. Your home phone number
  2. Your student’s 7-digit identification number
  3. A Verification Pass Code (The student ID number and Verification Pass Code are printed on their report card)

A letter containing this information will also be mailed to parents without portal accounts prior to registraton should a report card not be available. Assistance is also available from the front office once it reopens on August 13, 2013.

Students should also create a Student Portal account so that they have access to the same information and records as the Parent Portal. Students need their seven digit student ID number, an email address (must be different than their parents’), and the unique verification code that was used to create the Parent Portal account. Beginning next school year, students will use their Student Portal account to complete the registration process and choose their classes. It will be essential for students to have a valid Student Portal account to properly register for courses in the future. Students will not have the ability to change the data that parents enter in the Parent Portal. Information regarding opening a Student Portal account is available at .

A Trip down the memory lane.

These last couple of years have been a rocky road of friendships, heartaches, stress, and a road of conquering fears and experiencing new things but guess what? You have made it this far and now this fairytale ends. Send the yearbook staff a baby picture and a current picture of how you look now we’d love to feature it in our yearbook. It would be awesome to see how much you’ve changed.


Send us the pictures to the yearbook email!
