Presentation High School is a private, Catholic, college preparatory school for girls established in 1962. It is owned and run by the Sisters of the Presentation, and operates within the Diocese of San Jose in California. The school is located in the Willow Glen area of San Jose, California.
The school's mission is driven by the teachings of Nano Nagle, the foundress of the Sisters of the Presentation, who lived in the 18th century and dedicated her life to working with the poor. The school's motto is "Not words, but deeds", which promotes service and action among the students. The school colors are blue and gold, and the school mascot is the Panther.
The Presentation uniform consists of a blue and white plaid skirt, the white polo (during formal days), and any gray, royal blue, or white shirt (on non-formal days).
Presentation has a long and storied athletic tradition of success. With 11 sports offered, more than 60% of the Presentation student body participates in the Presentation athletic program. Student-athletes compete in the WCAL (West Catholic Athletic League) and the BVAL (Blossom Valley Athletic League). Presentation has accumulated four CIF State Individual Championships, one CIF State Team Championship, three Nor Cal Championships, 43 CCS (Central Coast Section) Championships, and 117 League Championships.
Presentation High School offers a variety of extracurriculars, the most notable ones being theater and dance. The school has an award-winning dance team, as well as a well-known theater program that produces a sold-out musical each November. The Performing Arts Department is extremely strong, and many who participate in it have already undergone large amounts of vocal training prior to joining the school.
Started in 2006, Presentation Invasion Team 2135 is Presentation's FIRST robotics competition team. The team consists of about 30 students that are assisted by mentors, many of them working for Silicon Valley companies. The team works out of their own garage at Presentation's "Jenvey house" and are trained in programming, SolidWorks CAD, CNC machining, mechanical engineering and electronics.
