McFarland High School is a public high school in McFarland, California, a city in Kern County north of Bakersfield and south of Fresno.



The school's API score was 701 in 2013.


In the 2013–14 school year, McFarland High School had an enrollment of 799 students, with, 0.5% Asian, 0.6% Filipino, 97.6% Hispanic, 0.5% Black, and 0.8% White.


The school is notable for its succession of twenty-four CIF Central Section championships in cross country between 1987 and 2013. The success of the team is documented in the 2015 Walt Disney Pictures film McFarland, USA starring Kevin Costner as coach at the center of the success, Jim White. The streak came to an end while the film was in production after the small school was elevated to Division I, competing with schools mostly with more than 2.5 times the population. The reclassification was based on a competitive equity formula which takes into account the team's win record.
