“As a Burbank neighbor to Queen of Peace, the Reavis Board of Education acknowledges that it will miss their strong presence within our community.” the board said in a joint written statement. “These families have now been put in the unenviable position of having to search for a new high school where their daughters can feel at home. These students deserve to attend a high school where they are comfortable, safe, welcomed and encouraged to grow and mature into fine young women ready to face the world upon graduation.”
“Reavis High School offers the highest quality academic programs, as well as stellar athletics and activities to all students. Therefore, the Board welcomes the opportunity to assist Queen of Peace students and offers them the option to complete their high school years in the same community where they started it,” the school board’s written statement continued.
