Note from the Principal
On June 16th, 2016 we brought the 2015-16 school-year to a close. As your principal, I enjoyed the time I spent with students, families, and staff. Together we helped make the school year a success. We have begun preparations for the fall and look forward to graduating our first senior class. Please enjoy your time off and take note of some the key happenings during the summer.
Summer Bridge: Preregistration closes on June 23. We have detailed information for the various grades posted on the website. Should you miss the registration window, we will accept walk-ups on the first day of the program pending available space. We will not be able to accept electronic registrations after June 23. Late registrants will need to bring completed forms with them on the first day of Bridge. (click here for forms) Parents, if your student did not preregister and we do not have space, someone will need to be available to take them home.
Final Report Cards: Report cards will be mailed home on Friday, June 24. They are also available to review on both StudentVue and ParentVue. Should you have questions regarding grades please reach out to us when the campus reopens on August 24
Offices Closed for the Summer: McBride High School does not remain open for the summer. Our offices close for the summer at the end of business on Friday, June 24. The campus will be open for Summer Bridge and AP Enrichment but the main office does not re-open for the 2016-17 school-year until August 24.
I hope each of you has a safe, enjoyable, and relaxing summer. Everyone on the team is looking forward to making 2016-17 even better.

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.
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.
