Manteca High School is a public, co-educational secondary school in Manteca, California, United States that was established on May 21, 1920. It is the oldest school within Manteca Unified School District.[3] Although originally built with a tower, it was torn down because the structure failed to meet earthquake regulations.


Manteca High is mainly known for the success in its football program. The Buffaloes are one of the most victorious teams in the area and have won seven section titles since the beginning of the 21st century (2001, 2005, 2006, 2013, 2016, 2017, 2019) with 11 appearances. They also had the state's longest winning streak (26) for a few months that stretched from October 21, 2005, to October 19, 2007. Additionally, Manteca has won a total of 15 Sac-Joaquin Section Team Championships (6 since 2013) and 32 Individual Sac-Joaquin Section Championships in the sports of wrestling, basketball, track & field, golf, tennis and swimming. The baseball team won its first ever section and state championship in 2014, followed by another section title in 2016. The girls soccer team won its first ever section championship in 2016 as well, followed by a girls tennis section title the same year. Finally, also in 2016, Manteca won its first state title in boys basketball by defeating Ayala High School of Chino Hills 60–51. It was the first state championship in boys basketball in Manteca Unified history.[4]
