• Dear Campolindo Community:


    As the principal of Campolindo High School, I am honored to be part of a rich tradition of educational excellence. Founded in 1962, Campolindo is a source of pride for the communities it serves: Moraga, Lafayette, and Orinda. Accredited through the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, recognized by the state as a California Distinguished School, and identified by national publications as one of the nation’s top high schools, Campolindo High School is building upon its rich tradition of educational excellence. Students excel in curricular programs that foster preparation in the core academic disciplines, as well as the arts and technical fields. Campolindo has a strong college preparatory and Advanced Placement program; however, the school’s wide variety of classes and academic support services ensure that all students, no matter their academic level, receive an excellent education. Faculty members work to ensure that Campolindo’s academic programs not only provide core content knowledge, but promote critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity.


    The Campolindo community has many reasons to be proud, but we must not let this record of success lead to complacency. We must continue to pursue college and career readiness for all of our students. We must continue to establish rich connections between the high school experience and the world beyond our classroom walls. We must continue to foster a culture that provides every student with a safe and welcoming environment. Through the highest levels of professionalism, dedication, and partnership, we will achieve these goals.


    A school’s success is largely determined by the quality of its personnel, and I am convinced that we have the right professionals in place to attain our goals. Our success as educators however, depends on collaborating with parents and the community, and I am excited about the partnerships we are building this year.


    I look forward to seeing you on campus soon.



    John Walker
