Welcome to Santa Ynez Valley Union High School

Santa Ynez Valley Union High School was founded in 1896 and is located in the picturesque Santa Ynez Valley--a quaint, rural community just inland from the wild and beautiful Central California coast. SYVUHS enjoys a long and rich tradition of excellence.  With fewer than 1,000 students enrolled, our pristine, park-like campus may be small, but our hard-earned reputation for success is widely recognized.  Whether it be in academics, athletics, visual and performing arts, occupational arts, agriculture,  community service, or any other endeavor, our students have historically excelled. Santa Ynez Valley Union High School is proud to be among the highest-achieving high schools in Santa Barbara County, but we don't rest on our laurels. Our faculty and staff actively practice innovative teaching with the goal of preparing our students to meet the uniquely unprecedented challenges of learning in the 21st century.
