Hello McBride Families,


Please take the time to read about upcoming events and do not hesitate to reach out to the school with any questions or concerns.

November 13 – First Quarter Grades Posted in ParentVue

Spring 2017 Awards Night (for current 10th to 12th graders):  Each year we recognize students for academic and service accomplishments at McBride during the Spring 2017 semester.  The festivities will be in the Lecture Hall on Thursday, 10/19 beginning at 6:30 PM.   We will recognize students in a number of areas including GPA, attendance, service learning, etc.  We will hold subsequent awards nights in February and May/June  for all grade levels.


PTSA:  McBride High School is working to relaunch PTSA.  We had a productive first meeting last week.  We meet again on Thursday, October 19th in the library at 5:00 PM.  We will be done in time for those attending the awards nights.    Our primary goal is to elect a slate of officers and begin framing the work for the year.  Please know we are not looking at PTSA to be a fundraising body.  We want the group to be a platform to support parent education, support calendar coordination among booster clubs and other parent bodies, and assist the school with events like dances, prom, and graduation.  Please consider attending on the 19th.

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.
