Monterey High School, a California Distinguished School, not only has a rich history as a part of our community for more than 100 years, but also has a bright future as a school of excellence for every student. Our Mission of developing lifelong learners, who positively contribute to their communities, to their families, and to their own personal growth, provides the framework within which we educate our students.
Monterey High School has something for everyone to chose – athletics, clubs, performing arts, robotics, community service opportunities, career pathways and internships, peer mentoring, leadership, and more. Our staff is here to support and inspire you to achieve your goals.
With our parent and community partnerships in place to support Monterey High’s efforts, students have opportunities to engage in real world experiences that support their graduating both college and career ready. Please continue taking the time to join us at the many school events. Additionally, please participate in all focused seminars that deliver material and strategies for students as they prepare for life after high school.
As we venture into the common core era of education, Monterey High School’s commitment to equitable access for all students to rigorous courses, academic opportunities, and guidance in pursuing all college and career options grows.
At Monterey High School, we promote powerful academic opportunities for students who reside within our community and who join us from neighboring communities. Along with your families, you have decided on MHS as your school of choice. We recognize that our students are representatives of cities throughout the Monterey Peninsula and the County and thank you for having the same faith in us, as we have in you. Together, let us take an educational journey that will have a positive impact on your future and the future of our community.
