What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination)

AVID is a nationally recognized program dedicated to closing the achievement gap by preparing all students for college and other post secondary opportunities. AVID is available to all Newport Harbor students but targets students traditionally underrepresented in higher education. AVID serves approximately 250 students per year and many of these students are the first in their family to attend college.  AVID students are typically in the middle when looking at academic performance and approximately 90% of AVID students participate in the free and reduced lunch program.   Over a 4 year period AVID empowers students by teaching them the skills and behaviors they need to guarantee academic success. It provides support with effective tutors and strong student/teacher relationships. AVID creates a positive peer group for students and provides confidence that with hard work they can achieve their goals. It also provides support and educational seminars for parents and families.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents

The purpose of the free after school and evening tutoring program is to provide all students with an opportunity to succeed academically regardless of their family’s financial or educational background. Free tutoring is offered after school in core subjects and is available to all 2400 students at all academic levels from remedial through honors and Advanced Placement/International Baccalaureate. Harbor High's math teachers are hired to provide free tutoring two evenings each week in the library. Many students do not have support or the proper environment at home to receive additional academic support. Private tutoring is very expensive and is not an option for many Newport Harbor students. The tutoring sessions provide college student tutors in an academic environment that is conducive to learning.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents

Career Exploration Mentor Program offers juniors a chance to 'test drive' a career of their choice with 12 hours of one-on-one meetings and job shadowing with a professional volunteer mentor. The NHHS Mentor Coordinator matches 150-200 juniors with 250 volunteer mentors in a wide variety of occupations. Students write reports after each meeting with their mentor and describe this year long program as one of the most powerful learning experiences in their 4 years of high school. It is deemed a success even if a student decides the career is not what they thought it was or are no longer interested. Many find their interests are confirmed and decide to pursue their dreams. The program helps to inform their important college decisions and future life plans.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents

Funds raised provide classrooms with innovative teaching software and classroom technology such as digital Nikon cameras for photography, Wacom styluses for digital art, calculators for math and unique apps to engage students in particular subject matter.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents

Each Newport Harbor High School academic department is encouraged to meet outside of the school year to collaborate. These summer meetings ensure even application of testing standards, create grading rubrics across the department for all teachers in the same subjects, and encourage year long collaboration. Stipends for each faculty member are provided by Newport Harbor Educational Foundation, and thus maintain excellence in Newport Harbor High's teaching standards.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Each year, the principals of Ensign Intermediate School and Newport Harbor High School both meet with their leadership faculty teams to determine what programs will be funded by the Ensign Fund and the Newport Harbor Educational Foundation. They can be most responsive to their school's needs and create a multitude of programs that serve a wide range of students. Enhancing educational opportunities at these two schools is the ultimate goal of the Ensign Fund and the Newport Harbor Educational Foundation.

Consistent implemention of programs that are defined by "CLASS" has insured student achievement at both Ensign Intermediate School and Newport Harbor High School: C is for Computers and Classroom Technology L is for Learning Assistance (Math Lab free tutoring, free tutors in all subjects all year, Advancement Via Individual Determination program (AVID), A is for Academic Enhancement (Advanced Placement teacher training, International Baccalaureate teacher training and course development) S is for Safe School Environment (nurse's aide, human relations programs) S is for Success after high school (career mentoring program, college counseling, Evening of the Arts, culinary arts program).

The local community is our biggest asset, consisting of parents, grandparents, alumni, businesses and corporate foundations. Each May, the Newport Harbor Home & Garden Tour (started in 1998) brings guests from all over southern California and beyond, to tour 6 beautiful homes in our community. The businesses, alumni and parents who support this event all contribute to enhancing educational opportunities for our 2400 high school students. Additional fund raising events, combined with donations from our families and local foundations allow us to continue to support our local intermediate school and high school. A volunteer base of 200+ parents, 80 dedicated board members between the two schools, and administrators who keep the community well informed all combine to insure success in myriad ways. We are building the future, one student at a time.

We work with school administrators to determine what the annual needs are, and plan a realistic goal of what we can fund raise for each school year's needs. We work very closely with school administrators, insuring that we only raise the funds, and that they determine how the funds are spent.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Data
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
Policies and processes
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
