San Gabriel High School is a public high school located around the border of San Gabriel, California and Alhambra, California. It is one of the three high schools in the Alhambra Unified School District.

It traditionally served students residing in San Gabriel although the balance was shifted in 1994 when San Gabriel Unified School District separated itself from Alhambra Unified. Upon separation, SGUSD opened Gabrielino High School to serve its students. San Gabriel High School now serves students from portions of Alhambra, San Gabriel, and Rosemead.[2] They now provide a webpage where anyone can directly contact their staff via email (including Administrators and Teachers). Students may also contact staff via BlueBooks.[3]
