Sage Creek High School is a public high school in Carlsbad, California. It opened in the fall of 2013 and is located in a coastal suburb of San Diego. Sage Creek specializes in the STEM fields and was created to alleviate growing enrollment in the first Carlsbad High School. Although the school is public, a lottery for admission is held if a class reaches a certain threshold. Sage Creek offers Wrestling, Lacrosse, Tennis, Volleyball, Girls' Field Hockey, Basketball, Cross Country, Track and Field, Golf, Boys' Baseball, Girls' Softball, Soccer, and Swimming.


Sage Creek is a verified CHPS school,[4] this means the school includes many renewable materials, water, and electricity saving technologies. The roughly 40-acre campus cost over $100 million to build, and includes 3 parking lots, 4 academic buildings, and several sport courts. A 17,500 square foot Performing Arts Center (PAC) opened in June 2018.[5]
