Established in 1959, Morro Bay High School is located in beautiful Central California and has been an integral part of the coastal community for more than 50 years.

The mission of Morro Bay High School is to challenge each student to achieve his or her maximum potential in the areas of academics, critical thinking, occupational skills, social development, and personal growth.

Morro Bay High School’s 43-acre campus is unique in that it is one of only a few schools in the country bordering the Pacific Ocean. The campus has 60 classrooms, a multi-purpose room, two gymnasiums, locker rooms, a library, and offices.

Morro Bay High School is on an alternating block schedule. Most students take 6 classes a semester. Students take 3 classes a day for a 110-minute block of time. Because of the length of classes, students attend classes on alternating days indicated by a “Blue” and “White” day. Students have an opportunity, if classes are available, to extend their day to include a zero period and/or a seventh period. Monday mornings are reserved for faculty collaboration, creating a “Late Start” Monday for students.
