LearnBoost welcomes Pittsburg Senior High
Pittsburg High School in Pittsburg, Contra Costa County, California is a suburban school serving all of Pittsburg. It has been in operation since 1924. Over 2,200 students attend the school, which used to be divided into three campuses: East Campus, Main Campus, and North Campus, but since the construction of the school the East campus was torn down. Students of each grade (9-12) attend both North and Main campus. Each grade has its own assistant principal. Pittsburg's marching band, which has more than 100 students, has also had extended an invitation to the 2009 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.
Pittsburg High is well-known for their football team which has reached the NCS final several times consecutively, losing to rival De La Salle. Pittsburg High School's football team was the last team to beat De La Salle High School's football team prior to their national record winning streak; that game was played in 1991, in which Pittsburg High won the NCS championship at the Oakland Coliseum. Many alumni are now competing for Division I programs, e.g. Jason Crawley (Fresno State), WR; Michael Togafau (University of Idaho), DE; Albert Toeaina (University of Tennessee), OT; Ra'shon Harris (University of Oregon), DE; Matt Lemley (Sacramento State), OG; Denton Tuiasosopo (Sacramento State), OL; Deric Davis (Portland State), WR; and many have gone to the NFL.
The school also offers several other sports including soccer, baseball, softball, cross country, basketball, golf, tennis, wrestling, and cheerleading.
