As an exemplary public school option for family-based education, our mission is to graduate self-directed confident learners who are responsible contributors within their communities. We accomplish this through a partnership with students, parents, and school staff in a positive and safe environment where learning occurs in a unique, individualized, and relevant manner.
Schoolwide Expected Learner Focus
Problem Solving/Thinking Skills
Pacific Coast High School offers a variety of programs based on both college prep and non-college prep curricula.
PCHS Requirements & Expectations
Each student is required to take a minimum of 20 units with Pacific Coast High School. Students may also choose to take community college classes, ROP classes, or private classes that may count toward graduation.
Students are expected to use good judgement, behave appropriately, and dress conservatively. No cell phone usage is permitted in class. We ask that students not loiter after class. Parents are requested to pick up students immediately after their last class.
A faculty advisor is assigned to every student. The faculty advisor helps with all the big questions about high school and Pacific Coast High School. They also help with transcript evaluation, class selection, developing alternative classes, suggestions for courses, and any questions you may have about your student’s college, work, and/or professional goals.
When there are specific questions about a course they are answered by the teacher of the course in which a student is enrolled. Advanced notice concerning any absences or emergency arrangements are directed in the same manner. For a list of email addresses and phone numbers, click here.
A syllabus is issued for every class, and it details all the components necessary for success in the class. Each syllabus includes the name and telephone number of the instructor, course descriptions, assignment descriptions, due dates, and test dates. The syllabus states expectations for each assignment from quality of work to parent comments and signatures.
Classes & Support Times
Support times are linked to core classes each semester. It is important for students to attend and stay informed. Specific days and times for each support class can be found in the semester class schedule.
Most PCHS courses are offered online. These courses feature a syllabus, links to specific articles or sites, interactive testing with immediate feedback, and online grade books for both students and parents to monitor student grades and progress. These are excellent college preparation courses.
