• Superintendent Hanson August 2023

    Greetings MVROP Community,

    As we embark on yet another school year, I want to warmly welcome each of you back to the Mission Valley ROP community. It's an honor to serve as your Superintendent, and I remain deeply committed to ensuring that every student who walks through our doors is empowered, enlightened, and equipped with the CTE skills they need for a successful future.

    The cornerstone of our success lies in our Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs. MVROP has always been at the forefront of offering innovative, rigorous, and relevant CTE courses that are closely aligned with the demands of the modern workforce. These programs aren't just about teaching Career Technical Education skills – they're about molding future leaders, thinkers, and change-makers who will shape the world.

    Our CTE programs stand out not merely because of our cutting-edge facilities or the advanced tools and technologies we employ but because of the passionate industry-trained educators who breathe life into these programs. Every lesson plan is crafted with precision, every class discussion nurtures critical thinking, and every project fosters creativity using skills implemented through hands-on learning. When our students complete their CTE journey, they leave MVROP not just with a certificate but with a renewed sense of purpose, a clearer vision for the future, and a toolkit of skills that will serve them for a lifetime.

    Last year, we saw tremendous achievements from our students. By proactively pursuing their passions here, they learned valuable hands-on skills, from caring for actual patients in healthcare facilities in the community to designing and testing electronic circuits that do specific tasks. Our students have made us incredibly proud. Their success is a testament to the power of blending hands-on, real-world experiences with a robust academic foundation. As we gear up for this school year, I am filled with anticipation and excitement to witness the milestones our students will achieve.

    To our returning students, I challenge you to delve deeper, aim higher, and dream bigger. To our new students, I invite you to embrace every opportunity, engage in every lesson, and allow the spirit of lifelong learning to shine bright.

    Let's make this school year a beacon of excellence, collaboration, and achievement. With our combined efforts, the sky isn't the limit; it's just the beginning.

    Here's to a year filled with growth, success, and the transformative power of CTE!
