Prospect High School's Background and History

Prospect High School, established in 1968, is located on the west side of the Santa Clara County’s Silicon Valley. Our 14-building campus is spread over 29 acres near the base of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Located within the city limits of Saratoga, our students reside in the communities of San Jose (80%), Campbell (15%) and Saratoga (5%). Prospect is at the crossroads of the tenth largest city in the United States and several smaller communities, and our student population reflects those demographics.

PHS has a population of approximately 1,550 students, 72 certificated staff (teachers, admin and counselors) and 28 support staff (clerical, custodial, cafeteria, and aides). Our class size average is 32 students per academic class. We stress a standards-based curriculum in an atmosphere that is safe, challenging, and supportive.
