Top of PageWelcome Message

Banning High School is on the move!  There is a new culture of collaboration, communication, and consistency.  Teachers report that they 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 more closely with the new common core standards. Student expectations are consistently 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); the Dual Enrollment college classes on campus, in partnership with Mt. San Jacinto Junior College, awarding both high school and college credit, are a tremendous benefit for students and a benefit to the district since there is no cost to the district. Dual enrollment classes provide high level courses to our students that meet University of California and Cal State University A-G requirements for admission. Advanced Placement classes are offered with many students taking advantage of the opportunity for college credit by 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 who has provided tremendous support.  In 2012 and again in 2013, at a global competition in San Diego, students in GIS were awarded first place in certain competitions placing BHS on the map!

Activities and athletics are in full swing with students experiencing success in both areas.  In 2012, the football team under the leadership of Head Coach John Stockham was the powerhouse of the Banning Pass Area with an 11-2 record, Mountain Valley League Championship, and a trip to the CIF Southern Section Semi-Finals. On September 20, 2013, the varsity football team defeated the Beaumont Cougars 20-10 in the annual "Battle of the Wheel" game. In 2013, Softball under the direction of Thomas Lara and Nathan Valdivia guided the girls to the 2nd round of the CIF Southern Section Playoffs. The ASB program, under the new direction of Robert Pierce, Link Crew, and Safe Schools Ambassadors Programs are going well. ASB leadership students are hard workers and get the job done. The ASB President for 2013-2014 is Savanna Alcantar. The student body is having fun while mentoring others. Getting everyone involved is ASB's ultimate goal. Go Broncos!

It is a new era at Banning High School with students, staff, parents and community members noticing and appreciating the positive changes. Principal Douglas Newton indicates that 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. 10-14 of the Banning High School Parent/Student Handbook. Please remember, Attendance Does Matter!
