    About Us

    Santa Clara High School was founded in 1872, making us the 6th oldest high school in the state of California. Originally located on the other side of town, SCHS was moved to the Benton Street location in 1981. We serve a diverse population of students from Santa Clara and portions of Sunnyvale and San Jose. Our school colors are blue/gold and our mascot is the Bruins.  More: SCHS Mission, Vision, and Expected Schoolwide Learning Results (ESLRs)
