From our spirited Homecoming Weeks, award-winning Royal Alliance marching band, 150+ clubs, annual Winter Wishes Rally, performing arts department, nationally-recognized Bear Witness newspaper, playful mascot, and more -- the Branham community has much to be proud of. Our campus culture is cultivated by the diverse experiences of staff, students, and stakeholders. Whether physically together or apart, we will always be linked by our unique Bruin spirit. Paws up!
Welcome to Branham High School, home of great academic pride and accomplishment. We are a California Distinguished school currently serving over 1900 students. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our staff, students, and families, BHS students continue to perform among the top in the state in academics, athletics, and extra-curriculars.
Branham High School is committed to providing an innovative and equitable education while focusing on these key goals:
Communication with all stakeholders- parents, students, and staff is thorough and timely. Outreach services focus on creating a sense of connection and meeting students' social-emotional needs. Teacher professional development and collaboration target students’ academic and social-emotional needs.
Instruction and assessment are primarily Common Core-focused with an emphasis on communication, critical thinking, and problem-solving. Higher-order thinking skills are regularly practiced and assessed through student-centered activities. ‘Raising the Bar’ is the norm, rather than the exception.
Preparation for Post-High School Success (Regardless of their ultimate plans, all students should graduate from BHS being college and career eligible and prepared. Regardless of post-secondary pathway chosen, we are committed to making sure that all doors are open to our students.
