Piner High School (PHS) is a Public high school in Santa Rosa, California, United States. It is part of the Santa Rosa High School District, which itself is a part of Santa Rosa City Schools.


Piner High School was built in 1966 in Santa Rosa, California.[3] Piner High School has been opened with 10th, 11th, and 12th grades in the fall of 1966.[3] It did not become a four-year high school until the early 1990s. The class of 1968 was the first graduating class of the school history. Prior to the first graduating class, William McCrossen, an adult, finished his high school education and was in fact the very first graduate of Piner High School.[4] The class of 1975 was the last of the four-year classes until 1996 when Piner was re-established as a four-year high school to alleviate overcrowding of local middle schools.


Piner High School is a member of the North Bay League Oak and Redwood Divisions [5] of the North Coast Section of the California Interscholastic Federation Sports that Piner High offers are:
