It traditionally served students residing in San Gabriel although the balance was shifted in 1994 when San Gabriel Unified School District separated itself from Alhambra Unified. Upon separation, SGUSD opened Gabrielino High School to serve its students. San Gabriel High School now serves students from portions of Alhambra, San Gabriel, and Rosemead.
San Gabriel High School first opened its doors in September 1955. It has been open with a couple of new buildings being built since then.

1988 Hostage Incident
Jeffrey Lyne Cox, a senior at San Gabriel High School, took a semi-automatic rifle to school on April 26, 1988, and held a humanities class of about 60 students hostage for over 30 minutes. Cox held the gun to one student when the teacher doubted Cox would cause harm and stated that he would prove it to her. At that time three students escaped out a rear door and were fired upon. Cox was later tackled and disarmed by another student. A friend of Cox's told the press that Cox had been inspired by the Kuwait Airways Flight 422 hijacking and by the novel Rage, which Cox had read over and over again and with which he strongly identified. He pleaded no contest to charges of kidnapping and assault with a deadly weapon after the jury deadlocked. He was sentenced to five years in prison.
