Calvine badge
The most appropriate way to explain the vision and mission of CHS is through the logo shown above, developed in March 2004 with staff and student input. The three words found in the school logo are meant to represent the following:

A dedicated staff, student body, and community working together proudly to support high levels of student achievement.


The attitude of not giving up; continual effort to accomplish one’s goals.


The completion of the high school diploma as a stepping stone to college and/or career.

School History

Calvine gets its name from the California Vineyard Company, a huge grape growing enterprise of the early 1900s, located east of Bradshaw Road. Calvine Road was the road that led from what is now Highway 99 to the lands belonging to the company. Two small high schools were closed when Calvine opened as a third continuation high school. They were Omochumnes, with its Miwok Indian name, located near what is now the Education Center, and Pioneer that had been at two different sites during its short life.
