Huntington Beach High School (HBHS) is a public high school in Huntington Beach, California. Built in 1906, it is part of the Huntington Beach Union High School District. HBHS is a California Distinguished School. Huntington Beach High School is also the home of the Academy for the Performing Arts.
Huntington Beach High School bell tower and auditorium were originally built in 1903 and were rebuilt in 1926. In July 2009, renovations were completed on the auditorium and the bell tower. Construction was also completed on the school's performing arts classrooms building and courtyard. The project was funded through taxes.
The school competes in the Sunset League. In 2006 the school moved to the Sea View League (which consisted of Huntington Beach, El Toro, Foothill, Woodbridge, Northwood, and Trabuco Hills) from the Sunset League, but moved back to the Sunset League in 2009. The Sunset League now contains Huntington Beach, Edison, Newport Harbor, Fountain Valley, Marina, and Los Alamitos.
In 1989, the California Interscholastic Federation ruled that the Huntington Beach Oilers football team had to forfeit all of their games because of an ineligible player. The school appealed and a judge ruled in favor of the school.
The Huntington Beach High School Varsity Volleyball currently holds the national record of 113 consecutive wins.
