La Puente High School is a public high school in La Puente, California, located in the San Gabriel Valley, serving grades 9-12. It was established in 1915. It is one of six high schools (including two alternative schools) in the Hacienda La Puente Unified School District. It is a California Distinguished School and about 80% of seniors graduate every year.[1]

The school has a number of small learning communities known as "academies," including the University Academy, Law Enforcement Academy, Business Academy, Multimedia Academy, Science and Engineering Academy, and Performing Arts Academy. The Law Enforcement Academy works in partnership with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department to educate students interested in a career in public service.

La Puente High School currently[when?] has 1425 students and 63 teachers.[2]

In September 2012, four soccer team players and a coach were investigated for hazing incidents, including sodomy of a minor.[3]
