Note from the Principal

As hard as it is to believe we are heading into the home stretch of the school year.  As we begin finishing out 2016-17 there are a number of key assessments and projects coming up.  Students please work hard all the way to the finish.  We are almost done. 


Class of 2017 Pride

Seniors and their families should be very proud.  As we gather information on acceptances and commitments to attend, our seniors are going to amazing places after graduation.  In addition to serving in the armed services, students will be attending a wide variety of colleges and universities including UCLA, UCI, Cal, UC Davis, CSULB, Chico State, University of Puget Sound LBCC and Cypress Colleges. Students, parents, guardians, and families should be proud of their efforts.  As principal it has been an honor to work with you over the past four years. 



As we enter this major assessment period, it is good to remind families of the importance of good nutrition and proper rest.  When faced with intellectually challenging tasks, the brain requires a great deal of energy and needs to be fed and rested like any other part of the body.  Please focus on good sleeping and eating habits during this time.   Below is an overview of the major assessments coming up in May.  


Advance Placement Exams

Students taking AP courses will be sitting for the various exams beginning on May 1 and continuing through May 11.   Students who do well have the opportunity to earn college credit for their efforts.  Students have been given a schedule of exam dates and it is also posted on the main page of the website.  Because this can be a very stressful and demanding time for students, please take the time to provide encouragement and support.  The entire staff at McBride is proud of their hard work and dedication.


SBAC and Life Science Exams

As part of the state requirements, schools are required to administer mandatory assessments to students in the areas of ELA, Math, and Science.  SBAC exams are given to all juniors and measure progress in ELA and Math.  The Life Science Exam is given to all sophomores.  The school uses these results to determine growth needs for individual students and for the school as a whole.  The testing window opens at McBride on May 22 and will run through June 2.  All juniors will take the math and ELA sections with their respective content teachers and all sophomores will test with their science teachers.


Pathway Assessments

Each year, the staff prepares project based assessments that help students demonstrate skills and concepts they have worked on throughout the year.  The projects integrate skills from both pathway related courses and the traditional core classes including math, science, English, and PE. Pathway assessments will take place on May 15-17.  Please be sure to be present for each day.


Please know I am very proud of the students and look forward to the closing out of the school year.

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.
