Ernest S. McBride, Sr. High School is one of the several small high schools listed as priorities in the Facility Master Plan, developed over a period of years by the Long Beach Unified School District with widespread community input.
When it opens in Fall 2013, McBride High will offer an innovative program of rigorous coursework focused on making graduates college and career-ready in their choice of three high-demand fields: Health/Medical, Law Enforcement/Legal Services, and Engineering.
Designed to serve about 1,000 students, the school will have 43 classrooms in seven buildings surrounding a campus promenade. The administration building/library, science building, two multi-story classroom buildings, gymnasium, lecture hall and food services facility will all have high-tech, energy efficient and flexible features to support student learning and success.
