Facing the 21st century

Congratulations to the Class of 2011, the largest ever to receive diplomas from Pleasanton's high schools. A total of 1,166 students will walk across the stages set up tonight on the football fields at Foothill and Amador Valley high schools. For Amador, this is its 88th graduating class; for much newer Foothill, it's the 38th class to receive diplomas since the school opened. Another 80 graduated earlier, including 70 from Village High School and 10 from Horizon High, a special school operated by the Pleasanton school district. After graduation night parties and a few weeks to rest up, most of these graduates will leave for college, having gained admission to state and national schools despite tough acceptance policies because of the excellent credentials Pleasanton high school diplomas offer.
