History[ edit ]

The school opened in 1972 as an open campus with 9th, 10th and 11th graders under Principal Joseph Tranchina. The Class of 1974 was the school’s first graduating class, and the Class of 1976 was the first four-year class.

Campus and facilities[ edit ]

2012 Map of facilities and permanent buildings at American High School. Three major wings (300, 500, 700) and the rotunda, which form the main building. The cafeteria is now in its own building.

American High School was separated into three main wings under its original design. When opened in 1972, the 300 and 500 wings were open areas, with individual classrooms being separated by portable dividers. By the time of the thirtieth anniversary, those wings had been remodeled to a traditional permanent wall arrangement.

Classes have been organized according to the wings. The 300-wing has traditionally served as the home of English, social studies and foreign language departments. The 500-wing has traditionally served as the home of the mathematics and science classes. The 700-wing has generally been reserved for the arts: music, theater, photography, art, sculpture, and architecture.

There are two theaters. Theater 50 is similar to a college lecture hall, while Theater 70 serves as the theater for the fall play and spring musical. When built, there were two additional theaters, Theater 30 and 31, which through the use of a retractable wall, could be converted into one larger theater. These theaters were later remodeled into classrooms.

The 400 wing is a series of two computer labs between the 300 and 500 wings. Between the 500 wing and the 700 wing is 600 wing, which is a series of three classrooms, one of which is now a kitchen for the cooking ROP classes. The classrooms of the 600 wing open up to the former cafeteria, now an open area. A new cafeteria-multipurpose building was built next to the gym in 2010. The 900 wing is a fenced complex of four classrooms just beyond the 700 wing. During the 2017-18 school year, the school opened two new double-storied buildings which feature 8 classrooms and 10 science labs. [4]

Athletics[ edit ]

American High School’s mascot is the American Eagle and its colors are red, white, and blue. Unique at the time, the school’s incoming students in 1972 were polled and chose the school’s name, mascot, and colors.

American High School belongs to the Mission Valley Athletic League (MVAL) .

The following sports are offered at American High School: cross country , football , volleyball , water polo , tennis , basketball , soccer , wrestling , baseball , track and field , golf , softball , swimming , and badminton .
