Big Bear High School Home


Welcome to our school! We believe that parent participation is key to student success; our new website is designed to provide parents with all the information they need to be active participants in their student’s education. You will find that the site works just as well on mobile devices as it does on a desktop so you can find information on the go.

Canned Food Drive

It is time for our POTUS and Friends of BBHS Canned Food Drive. We are excited to get started on collecting canned foods for the American Legion to distribute to the community for Thanksgiving. Each Period 3 teacher will receive a box in their room to collect Cans Only. Encourage your students to bring cans in as this will be a competition between the 3rd Period classes (and we picked 3rd period based on having the least teachers with a prep = means more cans). The canned food drive will start on Monday November 1st and go through Friday November 12th. We will collect and count cans and then have a special prize for the winning class. Any questions see or email Diane Kendall or Marjie Perkins. We will also have a box in the front office for other staff if you would like to donate cans as well. Thank you for your support and participation.

Volleyball Round 1

After an amazing season, our Girls Volleyball team is beginning their CIF journey this Thursday at home vs. Rubidoux High School. Be sure to congratulate them when you see them. Since it is a CIF game tickets for the game must be purchased online, and we will not be able to accept any cash. Also, we are in need of a couple of teachers willing to be there for supervision on what will be a great evening. Let me know if you are interested. A QR code with the link to purchase tickets is attached. Go Bears!!!

Aviation Class

Introducing Big Bear High School's new Aviation elective, as part of our Career and Technical Education (CTE) program. Did you know there is an increasing demand for aviation careers, including pilots, air traffic controllers, aviation mechanics, aviation engineers, drone pilots and drone engineers? AOPA's curriculum introduces students to aviation, while offering pathways for them to begin working on a drone and/or private pilot license. This Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) curriculum is aligned with Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards, making meaningful connections between high school subjects and real world applications. BBHS has also ordered Redbird simulators so our students can practice skills needed for flying.
