Note from the Principal

Alive Inside Community Fundraiser

On November 13, McBride High School will be hosting a fundraising event to support the Alive Inside Foundation.  This group is partnering with our Health and Medical Program along with other schools in the state to expand a program that uses music to help patients with Alzheimer’s and Dementia have increased lucent moments and memory recollection.  Students from our Health and Medical Family will be working with caregivers at the Brittany House to understand the power of music in helping these patients increase the quality of their lives.  We are excited to be part of the expanding pilot program and hope you can purchase a ticket or provide a donation to support this valuable work.  Please access their website for more details.

PTA Reflection Art Contest Winner

"Let Your Imagination Fly"
First Place Winner
White Canvas: the orchestra of color overwhelms it
by Setha Karin Oeurn, 9th Grade
The artwork relates to the theme "Let your imagination fly" as the boy "paints" his blank mind with images or memories from Japan such as fish kites and sakura tree and combines it with more American culture or things like bright skies and sunflowers creating a more colorful imagination.
2nd Place
A Part of My World
by Evan Reeder
10th grade
A visual representation on what could be created using ones imagination. Everything starts out as a thought and its up to you to bring it to life.

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.
