This spring, Middle College High School (MCHS) has been named a California Distinguished School. While attending MCHS, students are also enrolled in classes at San Bernardino Valley College, earning credits. “What an honor to be selected as a California Distinguished School for 2021,” MCHS Principal James Espinoza said.

“We couldn’t have achieved this level of distinction nor been able to sustain and expand successes for our MCHS community scholars without leadership from the top and support for our learning model. We are also so appreciative of the commitment of our scholars, their families, and our selfless and talented teachers and staff, not to mention our amazing partners from San Bernardino Valley College.”

The 18th group of graduates from MCHS were recently celebrated at SBVC’s 2021 Virtual Commencement. Out of the Middle College High School graduating class this year, 36 students will not only graduate from high school, but have pursued and met requirements for an associate degree. Following high school graduation, Middle College High School students will either continue at SBVC, or go on to four-year colleges and universities including UC Riverside, UC San Diego, UC Berkeley, and CSU San Bernardino.
