Facilities Needs Committee

Hollister High School is now the fourth largest high school in Northern California and continues to grow. The school has capacity for approximately 3,437 students, but for the 2022-23 school year, enrollment is projected to exceed 3,500 students.

As San Benito High School District works to serve current residents and a growing student population, we formed a Facilities Needs Committee to provide input on the location, educational programs, facilities, and access for a second high school. The Committee is composed of educators, parents, students, as well as community and business leaders.

Be sure to review our Facility Needs FAQ Pages for more information on a second high school:
