  • History & Memorable Moments

Gahr High School was completed in 1965 as the first high school in both the newly unified ABC Unified School District, and the recently incorporated City of Dairy Valley (the city would be renamed to its current state two years later) [4]. Indeed, the originally proposed name for the school was "Dairy Valley High School". The school was officially named after Richard Gahr, who had served as the school district's Superintendent. During the 1970s, as the student population in Cerritos rapidly grew, Cerritos High School was created for district expansion, and during its construction the latter used part of the Gahr campus. [1]

Gahr High School has recently gone through many changes. New quads were built, grass planted, and a new school mural painted. While some underestimate Gahr because it has somewhat lower test scores than a few neighboring schools, supporters point out that both the student diversity and teacher intimacy that Gahr is noted for make up for it. Many students are enrolled in Honors or Advanced Placement courses, and those in the latter work to pass the annual tests in May. Other students that are struggling in certain subjects are offered intervention programs and after-school and lunch tutoring by the many committed teachers. Recently in 2006 Gahr High School was invited to apply to be a Designated School, and earlier in 2007, it was readily inspected. Now it has "Designated School" to add to its resume. [1]
