South Gate High School is a 9-12 high school in South Gate, California, United States and is part of the Los Angeles Unified School District.

History

South Gate High School opened in January 1930.

Between 1993 and 1996 the number of students that passed Advanced Placement tests in government and macroeconomics subjects increased from 5% to 70%. The teaching of Ron Klein has been credited for this improvement.[3]

Students from this and neighboring schools demonstrated on June 26, 2002 against funding cuts. At South Gate High, nine teachers had been fired and the Second School Program, which provided students who are falling behind with tutoring from university students, had all funding removed.[4]

With the support of the school, about 800 students demonstrated against the counterfeiting of CDs of Latino music on December 5, 2002.[5]

On November 3, 2005, about 500 students took part in a sit-in to protest at issues including overcrowding and a lack of textbooks.[6]

As of the school year 2008-09, there were a total of 3,383 students attending the high school.[7]
