McBride Enrollment Q&A


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 opened in Fall 2013, McBride High began offering 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/Public Service, and Engineering.

Designed to serve about 1,000 students, the school has 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 all have high-tech, energy efficient and flexible features to support student learning and success.
