Vallejo High School is a high school located in Vallejo, California. It is part of the Vallejo City Unified School District and has been in the heart of Vallejo for more than 100 years.

In February 2014, the School's mascot was changed from the Apaches to Redhawks. This was due to the controversy revolving around the use of the name of a Native American tribe as a mascot. [1]
