About San Benito High School District
Founded in 1875, San Benito High School District (SBHSD) serves nearly 3,000 students in Hollister, California, 40 miles south of the Silicon Valley. The only high school in the district is committed to helping all students discover a passion for learning and reach their potential.
All stakeholders on campus work together to encourage, support, and guide student growth. As volunteers, committee members, decision-makers, and advocates for their children and the school, community members also play an active role in the success of our students.
In order to help students prepare for the demands of college, early careers, military or trade school, SBHSD provides a rigorous and relevant curriculum. The school fosters a system of inclusion classes to support English language learners and students with special educational needs, as they transition into mainstream classes.
In addition, the school supports the utilization of technology that builds relevant skills for a global economy. Beginning in the fall of 2017, the district will utilize flexible and innovative classrooms providing staff and students the opportunity to enhance the teaching and learning processes.
