High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
Los Altos High School, located in Los Altos, California, is one of the two MVLA, Mountain View High School District public high schools. As of 2005, the school principal is Wynne Satterwhite. The previous principal was George Perez, who left in 2004. The school was established in 1954 on the site of an orchard. Initially, Los Altos High School served the mostly white, middle to upper class populations of Los Altos and Los Altos Hills.
In 1982, the district closed its oldest high school, Mountain View High, which was located on Castro Street in downtown Mountain View. Awalt High School was then renamed Mountain View High. The new attendance boundaries for the two schools cut from the hill communities of Los Altos in the west through the valley community of Mountain View to the San Francisco Bay in the east.
In more recent history, Los Altos High underwent a large renovation over the past few years, which has significantly enhanced the campus environment, including a science and art building and a Sprinturf athletic field. As of the 2003-2004 school year, the enrollment was approximately 1600 students and in the last few years each incoming class has been significantly larger than the outgoing class.
About 119 students earned the title of Scholar in 2005. Interdisciplinary courses are offered including Environmental Field Studies, Global Connections and a math and science based pre-engineering program. Main Street Singers tour all over the world and are recognized for excellence in international and vocal music competitions. The school's mascot is the eagle, which it shares with nearby Almond Elementary School, both of which are located on Almond Avenue.

Los Altos High School with a personalized learning environment, which includes small learning communities where teachers and students integrate academic and occupational classes as a way to enhance real world relevance and still maintain high academic standards.
