Santa Clara High School is a comprehensive, co-educational, public high school located in Santa Clara, California, United States. It is one of four high schools in the Santa Clara Unified School District (SCUSD).

History

The school started in 1872 in downtown Santa Clara[1] at 270 Washington Street, what is now the campus of Buchser Middle School.[2] In 1981, the school name moved to what was originally known as Buchser High School (1960-1981) at 3000 Benton Street. The new location picked up the Buchser mascot as the Bruins.

The original school handled grades 10-12, with the middle schools of the district taking grades 6-9. In 1987, the 9th grade was added as the middle schools were phased down. Jefferson Middle School was closed with the campus eventually being sold. Cabrillo Middle School was closed for a period of time but has since reopened.

Swimming

Alumnus George Haines formed the Santa Clara Swim Club on campus in 1950. By 1960, seven swimmers from the club had qualified for the Olympics. The success of the club attracted swimmers to the high school. As a result of the club, the original Santa Clara High School was responsible for assembling the most Olympic Gold Medalists from a single high school.
