About Us


Mira Monte High School is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. We were awarded the maximum 6-year accreditation term which runs through 2025.



Mira Monte (MMHS) was established in 2008 and is located at 1800 South Fairfax Road, Bakersfield, California. MMHS is one of nineteen comprehensive high schools in the Kern High School District (KHSD) and is located in metropolitan Bakersfield in Kern County. The school is a beautiful campus and has maintained the PRIDE of the Lions. 



The staff consists of a principal, two assistant principals, two deans, a coordinator for Title I and ELL programs, directors for athletics and activities, six counselors, 103 certificated teachers and 66 classified employees. Our certificated staff is relatively young and energetic; we believe the staff is a positive, cohesive team focused on success.  We are committed to powerful teaching and learning. Student success and learning is the driving force behind every decision that we make. Teachers, administrators, instructional assistants, campus security personnel, food service workers, custodians, clerical, coaches and all other staff support our school’s philosophy of creating the right opportunity for every student to succeed.
