Hello Bear Nation,
My name is Omar Hemaidan, and I am proud to be the principal at Buchanan High School. As a community member for 28 years, the Buchanan Area is a special place my family calls home. With three Buchanan graduates (Classes of 2017, 2021, and 2023), my wife and I have appreciated our kids' excellent education at Buchanan. This comprehensive site truly values ALL students in Mind, Body & Spirit.
In the Fall of 1996, I was fortunate to have started my teaching career at Buchanan High School. At that time, peach orchards and an occasional country home surrounded BHS. Although some orchards remain, this community has grown, and Buchanan has become one of the most respected schools in California. Its rich history and success encompass academics and a wide range of programs, including athletics, visual and performing arts, and Career Technical Educational programs. I am thrilled and proud to be part of a school that has tremendously impacted our community.
In Bear Nation, we value the community and consider parent/guardian involvement a true partnership necessary for student success. As an educational team, we are honored to work with you and are committed to ensuring your students feel valued and supported throughout their educational journey.
We are excited to start the upcoming school year and encourage all parents to stay informed by visiting our website, the CUSD App, multiple social media platforms, and Parent Connect. These useful tools will provide you with valuable information throughout the year. We look forward to a wonderful school year. Go Bears!
