Principal's Message

At LGHS, we are very proud to be a part of a supportive learning community with our students and parents, as well as our partners in the town of Los Gatos. The faculty and staff at LGHS strive to create an environment where students fulfill their academic and career potential and have opportunities to participate and find success in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

Our students are challenged to achieve at high levels in their academic pursuits and are prepared to pursue their post-secondary opportunities at the most highly selective colleges in the nation. Advanced Placement classes are offered in all academic areas, foreign languages and fine arts. Our World Languages offerings include Spanish, French, Mandarin Chinese, and Japanese. Los Gatos High also has many options in the fine arts with choral and instrumental music, theater, drawing, painting, sculpture, and graphic design.

With over 72 clubs and 60 competitive co-curricular and athletic teams in 18 sports, LGHS students have ample opportunities to acquire leadership skills and help shape and inspire the school community. Los Gatos students lead by example by volunteering on service projects through their club affiliations throughout the community.

Los Gatos High students develop critical thinking skills and the ability to analyze, synthesize and evaluate ideas and information. They learn the importance of developing their talents with the prerequisite knowledge needed to make quality life decisions. Our teachers and staff understand how important it is to build positive relationships with students to help them develop as independent learners and thinkers. Our efforts are rewarded by outstanding student success by all measures.

Thank you for visiting our website and supporting our efforts to provide the best possible educational experience for our students.

Best Regards,
Kevin Buchanan
