Thank you for visiting the LMCHS website. Whether you are already part of the LMCHS family, or a new student or parent looking for information about our program, we hope that you will find everything you need here. We know that you have choices in where you go to school and we are glad you have chosen Lemoore Middle College High School.
Lemoore Middle College High School is a collaborative effort between the Lemoore Union High School District and West Hills College Lemoore. This WASC accredited, college preparatory program is designed to provide challenging and meaningful learning experiences for students in a nontraditional high school setting on the West Hills College Lemoore campus. Students are a part of the college atmosphere with full access to college facilities, including the library, bookstore, student union, career center, science labs, the sports complex, and other services and resources.
Students in grades 9-12 have the opportunity to not only earn a high school diploma that meets university entrance requirements, but they also take West Hills College courses within their regular school day and beyond. These West Hills College courses allow students to work toward their college goals while still in high school. As a charter school, students from Kings, Tulare, and Fresno Counties are able to attend without the need for interdistrict transfer or release from school of residence. Enrollment is competitive and strictly limited to 240 total students.
The mission of Lemoore Middle College High School is to provide an accelerated college preparatory education with a specific focus on concurrent college coursework embedded into the regular school day. Students will receive a standards and research-based college preparatory curriculum in a small school environment while benefiting from the opportunities available on a large community college campus.
All LMCHS students will graduate from the program with a strong sense of personal and school pride, accomplishment, and support, while knowing that they have the maturity, aptitude, and education to pursue their college degree.
