Senior Parent Night - May 23

Graduation is fast approaching.  At 5:00 PM on the night of Open House, we will be holding an information session for parents and students to review up-coming events and to help clarify any questions.  It is hard to believe we are less than 6 weeks away from graduation. Should you have pressing matters before the informational meeting, Ms. Browning, Ms. Salazar, and I are available by phone or email to help answer any questions or address any concerns.


Open House - Wednesday, May 23 

Open House will take place on Wednesday, May 23.  Students will have a minimum day as well.  We would like every family to attend see what amazing work your students have completed this year.  The evening will begin with food service at 5:00 PM.  We will have food for sale from  food trucks.   We hope to see you there.


AP Exams - May 7 through May 17

AP Exams begin on Monday, May 7 and run through May 17.  A full schedule is on the main page of the website. Mr. Morrison has been visiting all the AP classes to ensure students know where and when to report for their exams.  Per site and district protocol, students taking AP exams in the morning will go directly to their testing room at 7:30 AM (even if they are normally unscheduled for first or second period).  Upon completion of the test, they will be released to lunch and attend scheduled afternoon classes.  Students taking afternoon exams will report to their morning classes and be released at 11:30 AM to report to the exam rooms.  I am extremely proud of our students.  When the exam sessions are complete, McBride Students will have completed over a 1000 tests.  I wish each student all the best on their exams.


Senior Awards Night - Thursday, May 31

As seniors close out their last few weeks at McBride, we are excited to honor them for their four years of accomplishments.  Festivities will take place in the evening in the gym.  We are honored to recognize the amazing work of these seniors.  Light refreshments and drinks will be provided at no-charge.  Seating will be on a first come first serve basis.


Graduation - June 14 at LBCC

Graduation for the Class of 2018 will be held at Long Beach City College (LAC Campus) Gym.  The ceremony will begin at 5:00 PM.  Every graduate will receive 10 free guest tickets.  For families who need more than 10 guest tickets, please know we will have additional tickets for sale at $5 dollar.  Information on ticket sales and such will go out later this month.

(Fliers attached in English, Spanish, Khmer and Tagalog)


With the 4th of July holiday fast approaching, the Long Beach Fire and Police Departments would like to remind residents, visitors, and staff that all fireworks, including those marked “Safe and Sane,” are ILLEGAL in the City of Long Beach. 

The Fire and Police Departments will be out in force the days leading up to and on July 4th to ensure compliance of the Long Beach City Ordinance that bans fireworks. Although both Departments seek voluntary compliance to ensure public safety, this duty often requires strict enforcement of all laws through arrests and citations. Anyone cited or arrested for fireworks violations may be faced with a $1,000 fine, sentenced to jail for six months, or both. The fines and penalties may increase depending on the fireworks’ classification. 

Fireworks may be voluntarily disposed at collection bins located at:

  • All fire stations
  • Lifeguard Headquarters 2100 E. Ocean Boulevard, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Any police station

For more information, alerts, advisories, and emergency news please visit, "Like" us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and Instagram, or contact LBFD Community Services at (562) 570-2525. 

If you See Something, Say Something! Call Long Beach Police Dispatch at (562) 435-6711 or 9-1-1 if you observe dangerous or illegal activities.


Together, we can enjoy a safe holiday!



Summer + Robots = Awesome.

The Barboza Space Center’s Robotics Showcase Comes to SoCal this Summer - OnCUE

Come check out these free events in Long Beach and Los Angeles with hands on demonstrations of humanoid and other robots.


These meetings help the school district to strategize programs to support Pacific Islander students.  View the attached flier for details and a schedule of meetings through September.


State law requires all public schools to create a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about your child's school, which includes:

  • School Description and Mission
  • School Programs and Instructional Materials
  • Opportunities for Parent Involvement
  • Test Results
  • Safety Plan
  • Facilities

We invite you to view the School Accountability Report Card (SARC) for your child's school.  You can find your school's SARC here.


Attendance Policies

Attendance Matters

Good attendance is one of the major factors for student success in school. Maintaining good attendance school wide also helps our district maximize their Average Daily Attendance (ADA) funding. School districts receive the largest portion of their operational funding based on attendance.  If we can meet our attendance rate target of 95.41% our site will receive a check from the district to be used to support school wide activities such as field trips, campus events, etc. Below are a few suggestions on how you can help McBride exceed our targets and help the students succeed in the classroom.

1. Please be sure students clear absences the day they return to school.  Absences are cleared when the student or parent/guardian submit a note to the main office indicating the date(s) and reason for the absence.

2. Understand the state only recognizes illness, doctor’s appointments, court appearances, and death of an immediate family member as excused absences. All other reasons have to be marked as unexcused.

3. Because we do not get funding credit for unexcused absences please avoid missing school for vacations and trips.

4. Students must see their teachers immediately following an absence to obtain make-up work. 

5. Please inform the main office if a student will be out of school for multiple days.  Student’s should also communicate with their teachers via School Loop to get make-up work.

Three Pathways- One Vision

Three Pathways- One Vision 

McBride High School has three pathways, McBride Engineering, McBride Health Medical and McBride Criminal Justice and Investigation. All three pathways engage students around their interests, find relevant connections to real world activities, and gauge student learning through collaborative, hands-on projects. All three pathways prepare students for the demands of college and the workforce. With workplace learning experiences in their 12th grade year, all three pathways empower and inspire students to make their own path and determine their own future.
A Unique Experience 
McBride High School looks and feels different than any other high school you may have seen. With four career labs and other specialized spaces students will demonstrate what they have learned through projects, team collaboration and connections with industry partners. Students will collaborate in open areas designed for each pathway. Teachers will also work as a team to meet the needs of individual students and create a coherent educational experience. Addressing subjects at each grade level and centered on a career-themed course, students will see the natural connections between the theme of their pathway and English, History, Science and Math.
Challenging Academics
All three McBride pathways are focused on completing the UC and CSU Entrance Requirements (a-g) with a sequence of courses that are aligned to college expectations. Each pathway expects to create options for students to earn college credits while in high school.
