Principal's Message


Keep up the good work all the way to the end.
Spring semester is upon us and it will be time to assess students throughout some very busy spring months.  Each department administers district benchmark tests in each of the four core curriculum areas (Math, Science, Social Science, & English).  All 10th graders will begin preparation for the California high school exit exam, (CAHSEE) from February 11th until March 14th; students can attend free tutoring sessions after school from 3-4pm. This is a great opportunity and resource for our students to help prepare them for this extremely important test on March 18th & 19th.  AP testing will be here sooner than you think and Segerstrom prides itself on it's high percentages of AP students and AP pass rates.  Encourage your students to do their very best as we gear up for testing season.  
Spring sports are here, check out all the schedules on our website and come out to support our student-athletes as they continue to achieve amazing accomplishments.
Please contact the school at any time and ask about ways to volunteer, or be involved in the growth of your student and our educational community.  I hope everyone has a positive and productive spring semester.

D. McCulloch

Many visitors to our high school ask why we are named, "Segerstrom High School". Some want to know if we are related to the Orange County Performing Arts Center's Segerstrom Hall (we are!). Others ask us, "Who is See-gerstrom?" Here's the answer:
Henry Segerstrom (SAY-gerstrom) - for whom Segerstrom High School is named - is a familiar name in Orange County. The land upon which Segerstrom High School is built was purchased from the Segerstrom family who once grew crops on these acres.

Carl Segerstrom immigrated from Sweden at the turn of the century and began what we now know as C.J. Segerstrom & Sons, a real estate company whose work resulted in the construction of South Coast Plaza and the Orange County Performing Arts Center, among other contributions to Orange County. A generation later, Henry Segerstrom has been praised for his philanthropy. Our nearby Orange County Performing Arts Center sits on land donated by Mr. Segerstrom.
Henry Segerstrom recently received the Carnegie Hall "Medal of Excellence" for his philanthropic work in the performing arts. You can read more about Henry Segerstrom at the following sites:
