LearnBoost welcomes Paso Robles High
Paso Robles High School (PRHS) is the only comprehensive high school located in the city of Paso Robles, California. The school receives its students from George H. Flamson Middle School and Daniel E. Lewis Middle School, both located in Paso Robles, as well as from the Lillian Larsen School, a public K-8 school in San Miguel, California and Pleasant Valley Elementary School, a public K-8 school located in an outlying area of northeastern San Luis Obispo County. Additionally, the school receives students from private K-8 schools such as Trinity Lutheran School and St. Rose Catholic School, both located in Paso Robles. The school boasts strong vocational, agricultural, and college preparatory programs, as well as a limited number of honors and AP courses in the fields of history/social science (honors/AP), English language/literature (honors/AP), mathematics (AP) and science (AP). Foreign languages offered include Spanish, French, and American Sign Language. The school has also maintained the largest SkillsUSA organization in California for several years, and it is an AVID National Demonstration School.
Founded in 1901, the school originally stood at the current Flamson Middle School site (24th and Spring Sts.) and went through construction of two different school buildings at that site. In 1981, a new high school campus was built at the current site, 801 Niblick Road, and the old high school became a middle school. However, due to space constraints resulting from topography and from the campus' total enclosure by surrounding neighborhoods, the current campus lacks adequate facilities for hosting football games, so the school's home field continues to be War Memorial Stadium at Flamson Middle School. The school also lacks pool facilities, and swimming events are held at the Paso Robles Municipal Pool. Most other competitive sporting events are held on the PRHS campus. Although the school's athletic facilities are somewhat limited, the campus plays host to a rather extensive agricultural education facility. In addition to welding shops and specialized agriculture classrooms, the school has a working farm on-site, as well as its own wine grape vineyard. The school's mascot is the Bearcat.
