One year after a name change and a major staff overhaul, Huntington Beach High School's Academy for the Performing Arts is making parents and students happy again. The 4-year-old magnet school, formerly the School for the Performing Arts, got a new staff last summer and established a partnership with the high school after its success was threatened by declines in parent support and student involvement. "It's been a year of transition," said Robert Rotenberry, director of acting.

School district trustees received a recommendation this week calling for the creation in September of an academy for performing arts at Huntington Beach High School.

Huntington Beach High School locked up a share of the Sunset League championship for the first time since 1983 with a 28-11 victory over visiting Fountain Valley Thursday night at Sheue Field. Doug Cunningham, making his first start at quarterback since he was a freshman on the sophomore team in 1986, scored all of Huntington Beach's four touchdowns on the ground. Huntington Beach Coach George Pascoe switched Cunningham from tailback to quarterback to give his team a "different angle."
