A new kitchen is being built in the Hemet Student Center’s Acacia A building. It will enable the Center to offer meals through the National School Lunch Program, which provides free or reduced price meals for students who financially qualify.
|School staff anticipates the kitchen to be ready to offer meals through the program later in January. The Hemet Student Centers include the Hemet Quest Center for grades TK-8 serving 700 students. Among the program’s strengths are its flexibility; many students are involved in modeling and acting outside the school. The Hemet Renaissance program serves 130 high school students. A quarter of its students are in CTE (Career Technical Education) classes, and all juniors and seniors are in internship programs. Thirty teachers serve the student body.|
