Note from the Principal

WASC Accreditation Visit – March 12 through the 15:  Much like hospitals, colleges, and universities throughout the United States, high schools are required to be accredited on a regular basis.  During the 2013-14 school year we began this process with our initial visit.  We were granted the maximum term of four years.  As we graduate our first class we are required to go through the process again.   We have been gathering input from all stake holders during the past two years to ready ourselves for this visit.  As part of the process the visiting team wants to meet with parents to get your input and feedback on our progress.  In an effort to help get the maximum number of parent/guardian participants we will be holding the parent meeting on Sunday, March 12 from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM.  We will be asking representatives from each of our parent groups but want all parents to know they are welcome.  As we have tried to do since we opened as a school in 2013, we want and value your input.  We cannot improve without your honest feedback.  We will be providing regular reminders as the dates get closer.


Spring Event – McBride Casino Night:  On Saturday, April 29 we will be holding the Second Annual McBride Casino Night at Virginia Country Club.  The evening will begin at 6:00 PM and include music, food, table games as well as a live and silent auction. Last year your support allowed us to raise nearly $8000 dollars to help the school.  With your continued commitment, I am confident we can raise much more this year.  Please check the website for up to date news and information regarding the event.

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.
