Principal's Letter


Dear Reid Students, Parents and Community:



I would like to introduce myself; my name is Jeffrey M. Cornejo, Ed.D.  I have been with Long Beach Unified School District since 1987 as a Teacher at Franklin Middle School. In 1991, I moved to Millikan High School as an Assistant Principal.  In 2000, I performed my first stint at Will J. Reid High School as the Principal. I was also the Principal of the Guidance Opportunity Centers and the Transitional Ninth Grade High School.  It was at this time that the district decided to start Renaissance Career Academy on the former Reid High School site.  In 2002, I was reassigned to Millikan High School as Co-Principal. In 2016, I returned to Reid for a second time as Principal. I consider Reid to be the best kept secret of the LBUSD, and it is my intention to not keep it a secret any longer.


Reid’s mission is to ensure a safe, caring, and nurturing learning environment where each student is challenged daily to meet high academic and social expectations by a team of dedicated professionals working in collaboration with parents and other stakeholders.  Our goal is to transition our students into comprehensive campuses or graduate our students as soon as possible. 


The students at Reid High School receive the services of a well-prepared and dedicated staff.  Nine teachers offer a wide variety of curriculum.  The staff is highly trained and sets high standards of achievement for their students.  Our class sizes are smaller than a comprehensive high school.  For students who wish to earn credits faster, homework and variable credits are offered.


Reid has a certificated academic counselor.  The counselor has multiple opportunities to conference with her assigned students regarding their individualized high school educational plan and beyond.  The students will receive guidance in attendance improvement, behavior modification, and character education, acceptance of diversity, academic success techniques, careers and technology.  The classified staff enthusiastically serves the students of Will J. Reid High School.


The traditional high school campus does not work for all students.  Our goal is to create a safe and nurturing small environment for our students.  We want to have a place where these students are given every opportunity to receive a high school diploma.


Proud to be a Raptor,


Jeffrey M. Cornejo, Ed.D.

Now is the time for interested 11th and 12th grade students to register for the CSULB Ethnic Studies class during the fall semester.  This class is offered free to Long Beach Unified 11th and 12th grade students.  The class sessions will be held at each of the comprehensive high schools:  Cabrillo, Jordan, Lakewood, Millikan, Poly and Wilson. All classes will be held on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.  Classes will begin on Sept. 10 and continue until Dec. 17, 2016.   Attendance is extremely important in this college class.   If you are unable to attend more than 90 percent of the class sessions, you might reconsider registering for this class, as your grade will be negatively affected by absences.  If there is enough interest to offer the courses in the afternoon on Saturday or during the week, we will consider offering the courses at those alternative times.  However, we must have enough student interest in order to offer these additional time options.


Enrollment is limited to 70 students per school.  If there are more than 70 students interested per site, students will be randomly selected to participate, with 12th graders given priority.  Students who are not selected will be offered a space at another site where space is available or placed on a waiting list for the spring semester.


Additional classes will be available for students that have already completed a previous Ethnic Studies class/es and wish to take additional ethnic specific courses.  These advanced courses will be offered at sites that generate the most interest.


If you are interested in being considered for the spring semester CSULB Ethnic Studies class please complete the registration form.


The deadline to complete the registration form is Wednesday, Aug 31.


Please note that all notifications for the class will be sent through email.  Please check your email periodically.  Also check your spam/junk email folder, in case it is directed to that folder.


If you have any questions about the program, please see the attached Frequently Asked Questions sheet.  Additional details are provided in this video.  If you need further assistance, please contact Ms.Ortega at
