Parents » Welcome


Thank you for visiting us on-line. We would like to welcome our new families and hope your experience will be a rewarding one. At Central Coast High School, we believe parents and teachers are “partners in education.” We know that it takes the combined efforts of both the home and the school working together to educate our children. Therefore, parent involvement is our goal. Giving your time, your talent and ability will not only help our school, but will enhance our children’s learning.

If you would like to be more involved and become a volunteer at our school please contact our office at 831-392-3560.


School Safety

At Central Coast High School, student safety is our number one priority. Each year, Central Coast High School practices several different kinds of drills. We conduct fire drills, earthquake drills and different scenarios of lock down drills.

Please know that we are doing everything we can to ensure the safety of your children at school. Conducting regular safety drills is just one part of our safety plan. If you have questions or concerns regarding school safety, please feel free to contact the school at 831-392-3560
