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.
Palos Verdes Peninsula school is a top high school situated in the United States. Palos Verdes High School, PVHS is one of three public high schools on the Palos Verdes Peninsula in Southern California. Located by the ocean in Palos Verdes Estates, the school is part of the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District. Chris Bowles is the principal of the school.
Originally opened in 1962, the school earned many awards for academic and athletic excellence before declining enrollments due to demographic changes led the district to close Palos Verdes Peninsula school in 1991, combining three existing high schools into Palos Verdes Peninsula High School. The campus remained in use as Palos Verdes Intermediate School, with the former intermediate schools having been closed as part of the reorganization. In 2002, climbing enrollments and overcrowding at Peninsula High School led the district to reopen Palos Verdes High School.
The 1966 movie Batman staring Adam West and Burt Ward was partially filmed in and around Palos Verdes Peninsula school. The novels the Falcon and the Snowman by Robert Lindsey, the Mark of Conte by Sonia Levitin, and the Tribes of Palos Verdes by Joy Nicholson are based on life at Palos Verdes High School.
Athletic teams are known as the Sea Kings, which is the mascot of school, using the colors red and black and a logo resembling the Greek god Poseidon. Palos Verdes Peninsula school is home to the Palos Verdes Road Warriors, the only high school team to have participated in the Grand Challenge.

Palos Verdes High School's award-winning television program was created by students Bob Grace, Chris Seide, and instructor Rene Vela in 2002. The school is committed to success, challenging students and staff to achieve their potential. Their mission is to establish and maintain a caring, positive and safe environment in which students may maximize their academic growth.
