Saginaw High School (part of the Saginaw City School District) is located in Saginaw, Michigan, USA. The student enrollment is 593 students.[1]

The school's mission statement is "Saginaw High is committed to ensuring a safe and academic environment where the students will become academically proficient, life long learners, and productive citizens."


The school was established in 1865 as East Side High School.[4] Alice Freeman Palmer, who later became President of Wellesley College, was principal of the school from 1877 to 1879. In early 2014, there was some debate about closing the school. Many people disliked the idea and instead offered an 8th through 12th grade starting fall of 2014.[5]


Saginaw is recognized by NCA (North Central Association of Colleges and Schools) as an accredited public high school.[6]

Saginaw High has won multiple state championships in basketball. Their most recent state championship victory came in 2012 with a 54-42 win over the Rockford Rams capping a 26-2 season lead by Travontis Richardson and Kevin Marshall Jr. In 2007, Saginaw Trojans defeated the Detroit Redford Huskies to claim the Class A state championship, the first of back to back state championship teams led by current NBA player, Draymond Green. The Trojans then repeated in 2008, beating the Detroit Pershing Doughboys, to capture another Class A state championship title. Saginaw has also won championships in 1942, 1962, and 1996. It has been a hot recruiting ground for major colleges.

Saginaw has produced NBA players such as Draymond Green, Darvin Ham, and Anthony Roberson.

Saginaw girls' basketball won the state championship in 1986. Alumni include former Michigan State University basketball player Annette Babers[7] and former Howard University Kayette Jones.
