LearnBoost welcomes Barstow High
Barstow High School is a public high school located in Barstow, California. Founded in 1915, the school soon expanded and relocated to its current location in 1938.  The school serves about 3,000 students in grades 9 to 12 from across the city, as well as outlying areas. In recent years, funding from the city has allowed the school to expand greatly, including revamping of older buildings, as well as the construction of a science lab and a gym. The school is known for having excellent D3 State winning cross country teams, an award winning competition cheer squad and the Aztec Marching Band. In Track & Field DSL Championships held on April 30th, 2008, Anthony Solis broke the DSL record for the 3200m in 9:37 and later went on to run 9:11 at the 2008 California State Championships for 3200m, after winning CIF-SS D3 3200m individual title. Barstow High School had the Individual Champion in cross country at the Southern Section Finals with Anthony Solis winning in 2007 with a time of 15:01 and Isaac Chavez winning in 2008 with a time of 15:04 (both on the Mt.Sac cross country course). Barstow High school and Victor Valley High School compete annually in the "Axe" football game.
Originally, the "Riffians" was the mascot. When the school merged with the Kennedy High School "Spartans" across town the beginning of the 1977–1978 school year, the mascot was officially changed to the Aztecs.
