front of Back Bay High School

Back Bay is Newport-Mesa USD's Continuation High School. Approximately 200 students attend regularly. Continuation students strive to complete credits for graduation. Often due to illness or relocation, students fall behind the annual pace. Back Bay specializes in allowing students to complete requirements faster. 

Students typically attend 5 days per week, 5 periods per day, 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., some stay through 6th period, 3 p.m.

The enrollment process is a little different than the "neighborhood" high schools in our district. If you have enrollment papers from any of the other high schools in Newport-Mesa Unified School District, please save that paperwork as we may need it when you come to our campus to enroll.

The NMUSD Enrollment Page has information on address verification, immunizations, required documents (such as a birth certificate), etc.
