Well if you have not heard, our Casino Night is fast approaching.  Tickets are on sale for $75 each.  You can also purchase a table for 10 and received some extra perks.  Even if you do not like playing casino games, we will have dinner and dancing as well as silent and live auctions.  This evening is our major fundraiser for the school to support student activities, provide scholarships, and help defray the cost of graduation.  While the event is an adults only affair, everyone is welcome, friends, family, neighbors etc.  Your support is needed to make the night a success.  To learn more about the evening, purchase tickets, make a donation, and much more, please access the Casino Night Link.  


March 14 - Students Against Violence Activities

The Feb. 14 tragedy in Parkland, Florida and other losses of life on school campuses across the nation over several years have driven increased interest in student-led civic engagement efforts and actions, including the idea of school walk-outs.  The Long Beach Unified School District supports students’ Constitutional rights to peaceful assembly and free expression. 


On March 14, McBride High School students with support of school staff have organized peaceful activities to honor the survivors and victims of all types of violence including school shootings and domestic violence.  We are providing students a peaceful way to express their concerns and support the victims of violence across America.  We also want to be mindful if students opt not to participate as well.  We will have teachers and support staff providing supervision both in the classroom for those who opt not to participate and on campus for those who chose to take part.


SAT Testing for All Juniors – March 21 during the School Day

McBride is grateful to be able to offer all juniors the opportunity to take the SAT absolutely free on Wednesday, March 14.  Students in the junior class will follow a special schedule for testing which will be sent home at a later date.  All students will need to arrive to school early, even if they do not have a second period.  There are no make-up days for this exam so students must be present on March 21. 


As always please do not hesitate to reach out to the school with any questions or needed follow-up.


Go Wolfpack!!!!

Threat Prevention


Hello, Students and Families.


As we’ve seen in recent weeks, our schools are not immune to the potential threats that so many other schools nationwide have been dealing with.  We appreciate your heightened awareness of this issue, and we continue to encourage everyone in our school communities to report any suspicious information or activity that could impact school safety.


Threats to our schools are not harmless, and they are not funny.  They take valuable resources and time from our school district and the law enforcement agencies who work with us each day to keep our schools safe.  Threats cause anxiety for parents, students and staff, and they can disrupt the important work of teaching and learning.  Students who make threats face consequences that linger long after the threat is made.  We reiterate the Long Beach Police Department’s recent statement about such threats:


“The Long Beach Police Department takes all potential threats of violence very seriously and thoroughly investigates all reported incidents,” Chief Robert Luna said. “Making any kind of threat whether in person or online, is illegal and has serious consequences.”


Those consequences, as we also have seen in recent weeks, can include suspension, expulsion, arrest and potential prosecution under the law.  Students who make threats, even as a “joke,” can quickly find themselves facing the entire range of these consequences. 


We urge parents to discuss this matter with their children.  In light of the senseless loss of lives in recent school shootings nationally, it is completely inappropriate and unacceptable to make threats, even as a “joke.”


We have appreciated everyone’s support during this challenging time.  Again, we continue to encourage students, parents and staff to immediately report any information that could impact the safety of others.  With your help, we can continue to provide safe schools and the best possible education for our students.

Prevención de amenazas


Hola, estudiantes y familias.


Como hemos visto en las últimas semanas, nuestras escuelas no son inmunes a las posibles amenazas que otras escuelas a nivel nacional han estado enfrentando. Agradecemos su intensificada concienciación sobre este problema y seguimos animando a todos dentro de nuestras comunidades escolares a reportar toda información o actividad sospechosa que pudiera afectar la seguridad escolar.


Las amenazas a nuestras escuelas no son inocentes y no son graciosas.  Le quitan recursos valiosos y tiempo a nuestro distrito escolar y a las agencias del orden público quienes trabajan con nosotros cada día para mantener nuestras escuelas seguras.  Las amenazas les provocan ansiedad a los padres de familia, los estudiantes y al personal y pueden interrumpir la importante tarea de enseñar y aprender.  Los estudiantes que hacen estas amenazas enfrentan consecuencias que perduran por mucho tiempo después de haberlas hecho.  Reiteramos la reciente declaración del Departamento de Policía de Long Beach sobre estas amenazas:


El jefe de policía Robert Luna dijo, “el Departamento de Policía de Long Beach toma muy en serio todas las posibles amenazas de violencia e investiga completamente todos los incidentes reportados.”   “Hacer cualquier tipo de amenaza, ya sea en persona o por internet, es ilegal y tiene consecuencias graves.” 


Tales consecuencias, como también hemos visto en las recientes semanas, pueden incluir suspensión, arresto y un posible procesamiento legal.  Los estudiantes que hacen amenazas, aún en forma de “broma,” pueden encontrarse rápidamente enfrentando la gama completa de estas consecuencias. 


Instamos a los padres de familia a platicar con sus hijos de este asunto.  A consecuencia de la pérdida sin sentido de vidas en los recientes tiroteos escolares a nivel nacional, es completamente inapropiado e inaceptable hacer estas amenazas, ni siquiera en forma de “broma.”


Agradecemos el apoyo de todos durante este tiempo difícil.  Seguimos animando a los estudiantes, los padres de familia y al personal a que reporten inmediatamente cualquier información que pudiera tener un impacto en la seguridad de otras personas.  Con su ayuda, podemos seguir proporcionando escuelas seguras y la mejor educación posible para nuestros estudiantes.

Superintendente Escolar


Our 5th annual McBride Talent Show will take place Tuesday, March 27th in the Lecture hall beginning at 6:30 pm. It is sure to be an entertaining night of such acts as magic, comedy, singing and dancing. Tickets are $5 presale and $7 at the door. 


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.
