Monache High School is one of the three high schools located in Porterville, California, United States and is part of the Porterville Unified School District (PUSD). It's the city's second high school and as of 2015 serves approximately 1,838 students.[1]


There is a large mural of a Native American on the side of the school's gym. This refers to the high school's mascot, the "Marauder." The mural is shown on student handbooks, and on the posters detailing the school's ESLRs. An additional mural faces the tennis courts.


The Monache High School Marching Band has performed around the world, such as Edinburgh, Scotland, the Aloha Bowl, the Hollywood Christmas Parade, The Rose Parade, The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, The Orange Bowl Parade, and The Fiesta Bowl. The band has won the title of Grand Champions at the Selma Marching Band Festival 26 times. In 2006, the group won the Centennial Band Review and was named Grand Champion of the Chick-Fil-A Bowl Band festival, winning three of the festival's four events: jazz band, field show and parade. They did not compete in the Concert Band competition.
