Top of PageWelcome to Banning High School

There is a culture of collaboration, communication, and consistency at Banning High School. Teachers are supported and their voice is heard and included in the direction and vision of the school. Staff is enjoying a renewed sense of purpose as the curriculum is tightened and aligned with the new common core standards. Student expectations are high and reinforced while the campus is peaceful and conducive to learning.

Banning High School is proud to offer an array of effective programs to meet the needs of students. The Academy of Business and Technology, a California Partnership Academy, is highly successful and prepares students for Career and Technical Education (CTE); Dual Enrollment college classes on campus, in partnership with Mt. San Jacinto Junior College, awards both high school and college credit and is a tremendous benefit for students since there is no cost to the district. Dual enrollment classes provide high level courses to our students that meet University of California and California State University A-G requirements for admission. Advanced Placement classes are offered with many students taking advantage of the opportunity for college credit and taking the end of course exam in May. BHS has an expanding AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) program. AVID is the most effective program, nationwide, in assisting students to become college ready. The Geographic Information System (GIS) program "lets us visualize, question, analyze, interpret, and understand data to reveal relationships, patterns, and trends" (ESRI website). GIS is supported by ESRI. In 2012 and 2013, at a global competition in San Diego, students in GIS were awarded first place in certain competitions literally placing BHS on the map!

Activities and athletics are moving with students experiencing success in both areas.  In 2014, the girls varsity basketball team under the leadership of Head Coach Mark Kline (Coach of the Year) was a powerhouse and won the Mountain Valley League Championship, and a trip to the CIF Southern Section Second Round. The ASB program is in transition, under the direction of Robert Pierce. The ASB President for 2014-2015 is Benjamin Sheffield. Getting everyone involved is ASB's ultimate goal. Link Crew helps new freshman adapt to life in high school and Safe Schools Ambassadors creates peer groups amongst students that serve to mentor others in the classroom with positive behaviors. In 2014-2015 BHS will participate in the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports program (PBIS). Expectations of students and staff around campus and in classrooms will focus on positive interactions and conduct in all areas and situations. Be Responsible, Be Respectful, and Be Safe! 

It is an exhilarating era at Banning High School with students, staff, parents and community members noticing and appreciating the positive changes. BHS is an exciting place to be and that the school is indeed on the move. There's no better place for students to receive a well-rounded and valuable high school experience than at Banning High School, the Home of the Broncos.

The goal of the School Attendance Review Board (SARB) is to increase student attendance in school. Throughout the school year, the deputy district attorney meets with parents, students, and school officials to address issues of truancy and excessive absences. If, after numerous contacts and mediations, a child continues to be truant, the parent(s) will be prosecuted for violations of the California Education Code and/or California State Penal Code. For more information regarding SARB, please review pp. 10-13 of the Banning High School Parent/Student Handbook. Please remember, Attendance Does Matter!
