The school was founded June 13, 1906, with six students. It was previously named Loma Linda Union Academy. In 1969, San Timoteo Creek, which forms the northern boundary of the school's property, flooded the entire school and parts of the city, causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage to the school.
