"Bowman is a special alternative high school that has impacted so many in our community," said current Bowman Principal Eran Zeevi. "We are so proud to honor all the extraordinary people that have attended or worked at Bowman High School over the past 50 years."
For the fifth consecutive time, Jereann Bowman High School was named a Model Continuation High School by the California Department of Education in 2017, one of 35 schools across the state to be so awarded.
These schools are recognized for operating innovative academic programs that help prepare at-risk students for 21st-century careers and college. Bowman is the only school in the state of California to be given this award five consecutive times.
"I applaud the dedicated administration and staff on their work to assist and motivate at-risk students and help them reach their full potential," said Tom Torlakson, State Superintendent of Public Instruction. "The positive and nurturing climate these schools have created inspires students to do well in their academic work and also to contribute to their communities."
