CHS-Model United Nations Takes Gold


Over Veteran's Day Weekend, 15 Calabasas High School Model United Nations (MUN) students competed at the Stanford University Model United Nations Conference in Palo Alto. Out of 47 schools, Calabasas High School placed 1st! This was an amazing achievement considering most of the competing schools and students had prior experience; many having participated in Model UN classes for over a decade. Additionally, Las Virgenes students were competing while their families were experiencing  evacuations at home due to the California wildfires.

Model UN Advisor Brad Boelman shared, “This win speaks to the "grittiness" of our CHS students and I could not be more proud of how they represented our community!”
