The Bonita Bearcats are those people who attended or graduated from Bonita Union High School in La Verne, California. Graduation from Bonita is not a requirement for being a Bearcat. If you attended Bonita, you are a Bearcat.
Bonita High School was opened in 1903 to serve the towns of La Verne, San Dimas and La Verne Heights. The school was the focal point which brought the citizens of these towns together to form a bond between the families and kids attending Bonita. This bond lives on and has provided a link that cannot be forgotten or broken by time. Bonita High was unique in that generations of families have attended and provides strong family ties to the attendance at Bonita.
The Faculty and Staff of Bonita have given to all that attended the strength
and ability to move forward in life and seek with confidence our goals
and dreams. They helped to form the bonds that make Bonita the great school
it has always been.
