    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 currently have a little more than 2,000 students, and our mascot is the Bruins.  We serve students from Santa Clara as well as portions of southern Sunnyvale and northern San Jose.
