About San Luis Obispo High School
San Luis Obispo High School annually ranks among the top academic high schools in California. In addition to a challenging core academic program, SLOHS also offers a wide array of elective classes designed to help students prepare for their chosen career paths while still in high school. Our skilled teachers, motivated students and supportive parents guarantee that San Luis Obispo High School will continue to excel now and in the future.
Students at SLOHS also enjoy a multitude of athletic, extracurricular and co-curricular activities. Committed to the health and well being of the whole child, SLOHS provides extensive counseling services that help meet the social and emotional needs of our students. San Luis Obispo High School is a dynamic community of teachers, learners, parents and service providers dedicated to preparing youth for life beyond high school, while at the same time meeting the challenges of today. Our motto for the 2012-2013 school year is "Hear the Growl, See the Prowl!" As always, we will continue to strive for excellence in everything we do. Go Tigers!
Society’s expectations have changed high school education. Parents and students want more from their schools than just high academic standards. In fact, we have three agendas for our school:
1. Academic Programs
2. Social and Personal Development Programs
3. Recreational/Athletic Programs
Through these programs we hope to meet the needs of the whole student.
The staff at SLOHS and I have a strong commitment to a rigorous core program of study, ensuring that students at SLOHS will be the best educated in our school’s history. We have developed five Essential Schoolwide Learning Results (ESLRs) to ensure that our students are academic achievers and lifelong learners; responsible community citizens; healthy individuals; complex thinkers; and effective communicators when they graduate.
