Principal's Message

Welcome to Brenkwitz High School for the 2014-2015 school year. Our first and foremost goal is to help your student start their new beginning towards a more successful high school career. We ask that you help us help your student by ensuring that they attend school regularly and are prepared to learn.

Brenkwitz provides an alternative educational opportunity to Hayward's high school-aged population. For students who are in danger of not graduating from high school, Brenkwitz provides credit recovery and CAHSEE intervention. It is a small school setting where students receive individualized attention and develop a sense of community in a safe and secure learning environment. We offer students the chance to overcome academic or social challenges and experience success in school.

I welcome your input, suggestions, and questions—so please contact me at your convenience
