Chipman Junior High was first opened in 1969 providing educational services for students in 7th and 8th grades. The school is named after Bernice Harrell Chipman, a long-time Bakersfield resident, who is most well-known for being president of The Daily Californian, the local newspaper. She also served and volunteered in many different capacities, including being named the honorary chairman of the Kern County Centennial Celebration in 1966. Chipman Junior High is dedicated to providing each student the tools and curriculum they need to be successful in each phase of life, from High School, College, career and beyond.
