Auburn Senior High School is a public high school in Auburn, Washington, USA, founded in 1903. The school is situated on 18 acres (73,000 m2) of land in downtown Auburn. Its campus includes the Auburn Performing Arts Center (PAC), the Auburn Swimming Pool, Auburn Memorial Stadium (also known as Troy Field) and the Administration Annex. Beginning with the 2014-2015 school year, staff and students will move into the new Auburn High School located at 711 East Main Street in Auburn. Construction of the new school building began in February 2013, following the November 2012 Bond Election, in which Auburn District voters authorized the selling of bonds to fund the new high school building. The entire school, excepting the PAC and the autoshop building, will be replaced.
Auburn offers Advanced Placement classes in biology, calculus, language and composition, literature and composition, Spanish, U.S. history, European history and U.S. politics and government. Two foreign languages are taught - French and Spanish - up to the 7/8 (4th year) level.
