Kings River High School has been named a MODEL CONTINUATION SCHOOL by the State of California. Kings River Alternative Education is for students between the ages of 16 and 18. Kings River High School is a fully 6-year accredited school. In April 2015, the WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) granted Kings River High with their second 6-year accreditation. This is an important part to the success of Kings River High School. Students who enroll at Kings River High School are encouraged to finish their High School program and earn a diploma from Kings River. Students may apply to transfer back to Sanger High School after a semester of academic achievement standards (no major behavioral incidents, 2.0 GPA, and 97% attendance, plus any additional assigned requirements from the principal and/or Child Welfare & Attendance Officer).
All Kings River High School Teachers are Highly Qualified, which meets the NCLB requirement. Kings River's program may meet the needs of pupils who are not benefiting educationally from a traditional school environment because of, but not limited to: Academic non-achievement, emotional immaturity, truancy or irregular attendance, difficulty adapting to a large campus or behavioral issues.
