• Hello Chaparral Families,

    I am excited to be at Chaparral Prep Academy.  Go Bobcats!!!  My name is Todd Sorensen and I have been serving as Assistant Principal at Golden Poppy Elementary School, as well as Shadow Hills Magnet Engineering and Design Magnet Academy.  Before that, I was a teacher in the Westside Union School District where I won the District Teacher of the Year.  I grew up here in Palmdale and love being in education in my hometown.  I am married with five beautiful children of my own.

    I believe in education for all and that all kids learn differently.  Here at Chaparral, we believe in the Palmdale Promise when it says that we need to have "student engagement and achievement through access to powerful learning opportunities.”  We seek to provide those powerful learning opportunities in our classroom.  We want all students to feel connected to the school and hope to have a positive influence in their lives well into their college and careers.  This only happens with a strong relationship between the school and the community at large.  We encourage you to come to visit us or see what we are doing on social media.  As a Project-Based Learning school, we would love to show you all the great things that we are doing.  

    I am thrilled to be here at Chaparral Prep Academy and can’t wait to meet all of you. 


    Todd Sorensen

    Assistant Principal
