San Ramon Valley High School (SRVHS) was established in 1910 and is located in the town of Danville, a suburb in Contra Costa County about thirty-five miles east in San Francisco. Through the 1950s and 1960s, Danville and the other San Ramon Valley agricultural communities began experiencing extensive suburban growth. In 1960, the entire valley population stood at 12,700; however, the current Danville population alone is 43,574, after substantial growth. SRVHS serves the neighborhoods of the upper-middle class, suburban Alamo, Danville and San Ramon.
The school provides an education that fosters each student's intellectual, physical, and social growth. Our long history of success comes from a dedicated workforce, responsible students, devoted parents and active participants in the community.
The staff at the school works to ensure that all students are successful, whether they join the workforce immediately after graduation or enroll in higher-learning institutions. More than 99 percent of our students graduate and 98 percent continue their formal education in colleges of two and four years. Approximately 74 percent of students enrolled in a four-year program, and 24 percent enrolled in a two-year program. The other students either enlisted in the military or entered the workforce. The goal of the school is to produce graduates that represent the student learning outcomes (SLO's).
SRVHS Student Learning Outcomes:
SRVHS provides Advanced Placement (AP) courses to students wanting to pursue a college-level thesis while still in high school. The AP program is a joint educational initiative between high schools, universities and colleges. It gives students access to content at the college level by participating in an AP course and offers them the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned by taking an AP exam. Colleges can choose to award credit, advanced placement, or both based on exam scores. Students enrolling in AP classes are required to sit in May for the AP exams.
