Segerstrom High School is a public high school in Santa Ana, California, and is part of the Santa Ana Unified School District (SAUSD). The school opened in fall of 2005 with a freshman and sophomore class. Wealthy landowner Henry Segerstrom - for whom Segerstrom High School is named - is a familiar name in Orange County. The land upon which Segerstrom High School is built was purchased from the Segerstrom family, who once grew crops on these acres.

Students[edit]

The class of 2008 was the first to graduate from Segerstrom.

Segerstrom graduates 99% of its students compared to other schools in the District which consistently graduate a much smaller percentage of their students. Further, over 95% of Segerstrom students either enroll in community college or go on to pursue a degree from a four-year institution.

Buildings[edit]

The school is divided into five buildings. Building A houses the main office, library, gym, and the English Department. Building B houses a 430-seat Performing Arts Center as well as the band, choir, and drama classrooms. Building C is labeled "Humanities" and is used for subjects such as Foreign Language, History, and misc. Building D is the Science building and Building E homes the Mathematics Department.

Segerstrom also features a full sized football stadium with an all-weather running track surrounding the field. It was the first football field to be constructed on any high school in the Santa Ana Unified School District's schools. Before its construction, that district maintained a contract with the City Santa Ana's Parks and Recreation department to use the citywide stadium (Eddie West Field). Segerstrom's stadium now serves to host many of the high school's weekly football games during the season.
