Learn together. Play together. Live together. Through the Unified Champion Schools program at Trabuco Hills High School, students with and without disabilities have gained equitable access and opportunities for inclusive sports, inclusive classes and engagement in positive peer relationship across all school settings promoting campus cultures where inclusivity and equity is the norm. With sports as the catalyst, the implementation of the Unified Champion School program has spread across campus culture and continues to break down barriers by creating an equal playing field and providing an opportunity for all students to lead, share a unified voice and work together as equitable teammates, classmates, leaders and friends.
