Alhambra High School is a comprehensive public high school in the Martinez Unified School District. Nestled in the rolling hills of Martinez, Alhambra keeps a strong tie to deeply rooted community traditions. Our high school maintains its original Spanish style, yet is on the cutting edge of the 21st century education.
Approximately 1200 students are enrolled at Alhambra for the 2015-2016 school year. In 2015, Alhambra was honored by the state of California as a Gold Ribbon School. We received a six-year accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges in the spring of 2011. Alhambra High School is proud of our technology integration. We are a 1:1 computing school where computers are used daily in the classroom to support and enhance student learning. Alhambra is also part of the Diablo Gateways to Innovation consortium, and as such we have received significant grant funding in order to grow our career pathway courses. We currently offer courses in four different career pathways: Health/Medicine, Computer Science, Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing, and Digital Media Arts. There are also several articulation agreements in place for students to earn college credit at local community colleges while taking courses at AHS. Additionally, AP and Honors classes are offered in English, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, Foreign Language and Fine Arts. Our Performing Arts building has seen recent upgrades through Measure K, with an impressive new band room and Black Box theater, both of which complement our main stage where our active drama and music departments have performances throughout the year. The Creative Writing class produces Backroads, our yearly fine art magazine. AHS leadership and student government classes involve many of our students in the school community. We field 35 teams in the following sports: football, cross country, water polo, girls volley ball, girls golf, girls tennis, basketball, wrestling, soccer, cheerleading, track & field, swimming & diving, boys volleyball, baseball, softball, boys golf, boys tennis and lacrosse.
