Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year!

Dear Students,


This is going to be a great school year! We expect that you will come to school each day prepared to learn and strive for excellence in all of your endeavors. There will be challenges, but we are here to support you. With determination, perseverance, and a positive attitude, there is nothing that you can’t accomplish!


This year we are going to focus on being kind, respectful, and embracing our diversity. You are all unique and amazing young people. Our collective differences are our greatest strength. 


The more involved in activities at Venice you are, the more fun your experience here will be. Venice has over 50 clubs and numerous sports teams. We have over 20 after school programs and activities through the Venice Boys and Girls Club such as Cyber Patriot, Robotics, Chef Club, and Drama. Take a moment to check out our website and learn about the different clubs, teams, and activities you can be a part of. 


While you are at Venice you have the opportunity to take classes that will earn you both college and high school graduation credit. We offer numerous classes from Santa Monica College, and more AP classes than almost any high school in Los Angeles. Speak to your counselor to learn more and sign up. 


Students, I challenge you this school year to do the following: 

  • Set goals for yourself
  • Get involved with a new club, team, or activity
  • Sign up for a college level class
  • Find a way to do something kind for someone else each day


Parents, we welcome and need your involvement in the school. As partners, we can greatly support the success of the students here at Venice. We welcome you to join our Boosters, PTSA, SSC, ELAC, and SBM councils. We also need regular volunteers to help out at the school and would greatly appreciate your time. Please contact Mr. Lange in the magnet office if you are interested in being processed as a parent volunteer. 



We look forward to learning and growing with you each day this year!


Your Principal,



Dr. Wiedoeft
