Vallejo High School is a high school located in Vallejo, California. It is part of the Vallejo City Unified School District and has been in the heart of Vallejo for more than 100 years.

In February 2014, the School's mascot was changed from the Apaches to Redhawks. This was due to the controversy revolving around the use of the name of a Native American tribe as a mascot.[2]


Referred to as the "Wall-to-Wall Academies", each academy is a unique, small learning community. As freshman, students are automatically placed into the 9th Grade Academy with classes located on the former Vallejo Middle School Campus. In tenth grade, students choose an academy to remain in based on individual college/career interests. Several of these academies features Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses. Beginning with the class of 2016, all students are required to be in an academy.

  • Biotechnology Academy
  • Green Engineering Academy and Robotics
  • Health and Fitness Academy
  • Hospitality Academy
  • Visual and Performing Arts Academy

In the midst of Old Vallejo
Stands the school we love
Emblem pure of faith and beauty
Blessed by God above
Lift the chorus, speed it onward
Loud our praises soar
Hail to the, our Alma Mater, Vallejo evermore!
