History[edit]

Lathrop High became the first secondary school in the city of Lathrop. With no high school in the city, students within Lathrop city limits fed into the surrounding high schools in the district, with Sierra High School being the primary recipient of Lathrop students. With the growing population in the central valley, the Manteca Unified School District made the decision to create a new high school in the growing city of Lathrop. Lathrop High School opened in fall 2008, with David Chamberlain as the principal. The student population started with roughly 500 students that consisted of only freshman and sophomores.

Lathrop High School now has a student population over 1200.
