    Kent Cromwell - Principal
    Kent was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley (Woodland Hills).  He attended Hale Junior High School and El Camino Real High School.  While in high school, he ran track and cross-country.  His favorite event was the pole vault.  After high school, he attended Sonoma State University and was awarded a degree in Kinesiology.  He then attended Chapman University and was awarded a Master of Arts in teaching.
     
    After graduation from Sonoma State University, he chose to remain in Sonoma County to begin his career.  Kent served five years working as the Principal of Laguna Continuation High School in Sonoma County.  Prior to that, he served two years working as an elementary school Principal, four years as a middle school Principal and one year as Dean of Students of a high school overseeing all alternative education programs.
     
    His intentions were always to return to Southern California.  At this point, he realized that goal and relocated back to the San Fernando Valley.
     
    In his spare time, Kent likes to be outdoors.  He enjoys hiking, surfing, mountain biking, off-roading, skiing and pretty much anything that gets him moving.  He also likes to travel.  He is always looking for new and exciting things to do and places to go, so if you have any ideas, let him know!
