Templeton High School is a WASC accredited public high school providing ninth- through twelfth-grade education in Templeton, California.[1] In 2006, Templeton High School was nationally recognized as a (NCLB) Blue Ribbon School. It offers an impressive number of Advanced Placement classes, unusual for a school of its size.

Located at the end of Main Street. Enrollment has grown substantially during the past decade.[2] Currently the school comprises forty-three classrooms, a library, multi-purpose room, food services area, two locker complexes, eating areas, a gymnasium (with seating capacity for 1200), and a vocational/technology area composed of wood, metals, CAD, and ornamental horticulture classrooms.[2] An active 7-acre (2.8 ha) farm is located on “Ag Hill” with indoor/outdoor facilities for large and small animals.[2] A sports complex consisting of baseball fields is located at Vineyard Elementary School. A permanent restroom facility was added to the complex in 2005.[2] The Performing Arts Center opened its doors for the winter concerts in December 2002 with 340 seats and the new varsity stadium held its first football game in the fall of 2005.[2]

Extra curricular[edit]

Templeton High School is home to an outstanding band program, including a concert band, jazz band, marching band, winter drum line and winter guard. The marching band is very successful, especially for its size, numbering under 50 individuals. They placed first in their division and were overall best band in the Atascadero Colony Days Band Competition in 2009 and 2013. All the programs are unique and beneficial to both students and community.

The school mock trial team has also had a long history of success. The team has won the county competition and proceeded to state finals for 12 of the last 15 years. In 2009/2010, the team medaled at state finals in San Jose, CA and also won two first place awards for individuals.
