Welcome to CBHS!

We are pleased to welcome you to our school community. We strive to be a place where people want to come to learn, teach, and work. Central Bay has been honored as one of California’s Model Continuation High Schools. Also, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges has given us a very high rating because we maintain a set of high expectations that meet both the district’s and state’s guidelines and regulations while we provide classes designed to help all students succeed. 

School Wide Learning Outcomes

Choose Your Path

Students reflect on their personal strengths and challenges and then make deliberate choices towards meeting their goals.

Build Healthy Relationships

Students use interpersonal skills to work collaboratively and to strategically foster caring and respectful relationships at school, at work, and at home.

High School Diploma

Students work towards a high school diploma as a signal of their commitment to learning and an understanding of core knowledge and skills to serve as a basis for future learning.

Skills for Success

Students master basic reading, writing, and math skills, as they develop the creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills required to “work at jobs that do not yet exist, creating ideas and solutions for products and problems that have not yet been identified, using technologies that have not yet been invented”.   


The Flat World and Education: How America's Commitment to Equity Will Determine Our Future, Linda Darling-Hammond, Teachers College Press, New York, 2007

Our Mission

To provide a comfortable and safe environment that provides support services and course work for our students in order for them to graduate from high school and acquire the confidence and skills necessary for their futures as productive citizens, employees, and parents.
