Jeffrey M. Cornejo Ed.D.

 

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.  I have had a long and fulfilling career in Long Beach, and I am eager to start my next stage of my career back here at Reid High School.  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.

 

Will J. Reid High School is an alternative high school of the Long Beach Unified School District.  When I was formerly assigned to Reid, the program was housed in the downtown area of Long Beach, located on the corner of Long Beach Boulevard and 8th Street.  In order to better serve the students of LBUSD, the program was moved to 2153 West Hill Street in the west side of town.  The campus is now located at the Long Beach Learning Center, 3701 E. Willow Street Long Beach, CA 90815.  We share this location with Long Beach School for Adults, Beach High School, Juvenile Day Reporting Center and Head Start.  This one stop educational center serves students from four to adults well out of high school.  We are a one stop center that serves a wide range of needs of the community.

 

Reid’s mission is to provide personalized instruction and support in an alternative educational setting.  The campus will be a safe, caring and nurturing learning environment where each student is challenged daily to meet high academic and social expectation by a team of dedicated professionals.  The Reid staff wants to work in collaboration with parents and other stakeholders.  Our vision is that every student graduates and then moves on a college or career path.

 

The students at Reid High School receive the services of a well-prepared and dedicated staff.  Twenty staff members are on site to meet the needs of the students.  There are ten teachers offering 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.

 

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, 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 and pursue their dreams.

 Mark Eomurian "Mr. E." / Dean of Students

I would like to introduce myself; my name is Mark Eomurian and I have been a part of the Long Beach Unified School District for most of my life. I was born and raised in Long Beach, attending Stanford Jr, High before graduating from Millikan High School. I then went to Long Beach City College followed by Cal State Long Beach. While I was at LBCC and CSULB I worked as a college aide and as a recreational aide at Carver and Cubberley elementary schools. It is there I discovered my passion for working with students and assisting them in achieving their learning and personal goals. 

 

I began my teaching career at my alma mater, Millikan, in 1998 working with students with disabilities. I joined the Reid family in 2006 where I have had the distinct privilege of developing relationships with our stakeholders as we all strive towards the common goal of graduation and developing lifelong learning skills. Now in my 22nd year as a professional educator I serve as Reid’s Dean of students. As Dean I strive to work with our students to develop self-efficacy and to unlock the potential that our students have within themselves. 

 

Reid Continuation High School serves a diverse population of motivated students that seek to earn their diploma in an alternative setting. Our methodological practices provide a more individualized means of instruction that allow our students to earn credits at an accelerated rate in comparison to the traditional high schools. Our goal is to provide an enriching environment that fosters growth and success. I look forward to working with you.
