Welcome to Montecito High School/Future Bound

Montecito High School prepares students for academic success, for personal growth, and to become productive community members by providing a safe, supportive and flexible learning environment.  Students fulfill academic requirements, and demonstrate personal social responsibility that will empower and prepare them to thrive in the 21st century.
Montecito High School has received a six-year term accreditation by the Accrediting Commission for Schools from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges through June, 2020.  Montecito High School is also recognized as a Model Continuation School, a distinct recognition in the State of California.  MHS Principal Lohman is recognized as Principal of the Year for the Continuation High Schools in the State of California.
Daily Program
The regular education program is offered five days per week between the hours of 7:45am and 12:48pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and 7:45 - 11:47 Wednesday.  This program provides students with a comprehensive academic and vocational course of study which meets State and RUSD standards toward earning a high school diploma.
The 21st Century High School ASSETs grant provides incentives for establishing before and after school enrichment programs that partner with school and communities to provide academic support;  safe, constructive alternatives for high school students; and assistance in passing the California Exit Examination (CAHSEE).  This includes opportunities for students who are striving to become credit current.  The major focus of the credit recovery period is student learning, meeting state standards and providing additional academic support.
