The California Department of Education named Bowman High School as a Model Continuation High School for its efforts to help struggling students stay in school, state officials announced Friday.

Bowman is one of 27 continuation high schools across California to receive the honor. Continuation high schools serve students who are often credit deficit or at-risk of not graduating high school.

Bowman, which is part of the William S. Hart Union High School District, is the Santa Clarita Valley’s only continuation high school and has received the model designation numerous times.

“These schools create a culture of learning for and provide educational continuity for students whose lives have been challenged,” State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell said in a statement Friday. “These Model Continuation High Schools have programs worth emulating. They help young people realize that getting a good education and earning a high school diploma is their chance toward leading a better and more prosperous life.”
