About the Bulldogs

Principal's Message

Bowman High School’s core values, developed collaboratively with students, staff, parents, and community members, inspire us: We believe that all students can learn. We believe that every student deserves opportunities to succeed. We believe that honoring diversity strengthens us. We believe that failure is not an option.

Jereann Bowman High School, an educational alternative to a traditional high school setting, offers an environment where students develop academic and critical-thinking skills. Students explore career and postsecondary options, develop positive character and citizenship traits, demonstrate effective communication skills, and expand cultural understanding and awareness. We are a California Model Continuation High School where teacher collaboration and a focus on critical thinking skills have successfully improved student achievement.

Bowman is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) for a sixyear, clear term and has been awarded the California Model Continuation High School award for the past 15 years. Educators from throughout the state visit Bowman to learn from our successful and innovative program. We welcome parents and family members to volunteer at school and on the School Site Council.

Bowman challenges and supports students to reach their fullest potential as unique members of an ever-changing society. As members of a smaller learning community, our students forge vital connections with caring adults to improve their academic achievement and to experience success. We believe, and demonstrate, that all students can learn!
