Established in 1958 on a 44.40-acre site, San Marcos High School is centered between Santa Barbara and Goleta.
The school’s varied curriculum offers over 200 academic and elective courses. Approximately 80% of San Marcos students go on to higher education, with 35% going directly to four-year colleges and universities and 45% attending two-year community colleges.
San Marcos moved from a traditional six-period day to a block schedule where students take three 90-minute classes a day with the option of a fourth class. Students may thus complete 16 classes a year instead of the traditional 12.
California Distinguished High School (1994, 2005)
Six-year accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (granted 2009-2010)
