Spanish term or phrase: Colegio de Bachilleres del Estado de Baja California
Translation of the title (school name) in a Mexican transcript.

Should I translate the name of the school, and what would be an accurate translation into U.S. English since the above school is equivalent to High School (I don't want it to sound like Bachelor since it isn't)

Explanation:
Hi, Ana.
From experience, I would recommend you use the title in Spanish, as is, immediately followed, in perenthesis, by "Baja California State High School".
You won't get any closer than that.
Luck:-)
