One-hundred and eighteen students will walk the stage for the graduating Class of 2022 at Malibu High School. Approximately 90 percent attended a postsecondary institution. Seventy-six students (64 percent) will enroll directly in a four-year college and 32 students (27 percent) will attend a community college. Sixty percent of students are staying in California for college. Thirty-one students are attending a University of California or Cal State campus. There will be at least one student attending each UC this year and two students studying internationally.
“Our students should be very proud of their accomplishments. We are extremely proud of them!” Malibu High Principal Patrick Miller said in an email to The Malibu Times. “They all have exciting goals, were admitted to and/or selected to incredible colleges based on best fit for them, or have great plans for work and for their futures. It is going to be very exciting to see what they all do. Given their incredible growth and maturity during difficult times over the past seven years, there is no doubt they will continue to learn, explore, and do great things.”
