School Data


About this School 

​McLane High School is one of eight comprehensive high schools in the Fresno Unified School District. When opened in 1959, it was the shiny new school at the edge of town, winning athletic championships and academic honors. Many prominent leaders in the city of Fresno attended McLane in the 1960s and 1970s.
Our rewards have been many. More students are taking rigorous coursework, more 9th graders are on track for graduation and we are the only high school in the Fresno Unified School District to have experienced consistent growth in API over the last eight years. As we have experienced success, those successes do not encourage us to rest, but instead encourage our efforts. We are making a difference. We are learning and growing and we can apply the processes we used to find success in one area to another area of focus. We believe in our students and in one another.

School Site Council

The School Site Council, which includes parent members, meets seven to eight times per year. This group reviews schoolwide data, discusses the instructional program, and makes decisions about the use of categorical resources to support instruction.
McLane has an active English Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC), which meets four times a year. At ELAC meetings, parents review the program the school offers for English Learners and make recommendations that are carried to the School Site Council. In addition, they discuss and learn about CAHSEE, college preparation, and monitoring and supporting students. Parents are notified about ELAC meetings through fliers which are translated into Spanish and Hmong, as well as ​Teleparent messages. Meetings are facilitated by our Bilingual Counseling Resource Assistants, who can conduct meeting discussions in the primary languages of Spanish and Hmong.
Babysitting is provided so that parents can attend the meeting without worrying about leaving younger children unattended. Representatives from ELAC participate in DELAC (the District English Learner Advisory Committee). DELAC meets several times a year to discuss issues affecting EL students across the district.
