Welcome

Welcome to San Marcos High School

San Marcos High School, the flagship high school in the San Marcos Unified School District currently serves a population of over 3500 students from west San Marcos and communities south of the 78 freeway. With Cal State San Marcos and Palomar College as our neighbors, San Marcos works in liaison with these educational institutions to provide students with a strong foundation in secondary education.  Our award winning specialized programs such as, Bio Tech Lab, Genetics, TV News Production, Robotics, Engineering, Digital Video Production, and Computer Science give students many options that prepare them for life after high school, be it college entrance or a career field. 
Our belief that all students can learn is enhanced by a variety of support programs including but not limited to: AVID, Knight Zone Tutoring, QUEST, SAT and ACT Prep, Summer Scholars, and a full range of Advanced Placement and Honors courses.  San Marcos students connect with their campus by participating in one or more of our clubs, of which we have over 100, student organizations, full range of athletics and our award winning performing arts program.
During our weekly collaboration time, our staff work together in teams to refine and enhance our standards and expectations based on curricula to increase student achievement.
 
We are proud to say that San Marcos High School is a safe and nurturing environment where all students are empowered to achieve personal growth and honorably contribute to their communities.
