Principal's Message

Hello all Jaguars,

It has been one of the strongest, dynamic, transforming years in our young schools history.  The eighteenth month WASC journey came to a conclusion in March and we received a 6-year accreditation, with a mid-cycle one-day follow up.  Congratulations to all our stakeholders for this outstanding accomplishment, the Segerstrom program is as strong as ever.  Over the past year we have replaced every working computer on campus for teachers, students and staff.  With the help of the district, we have purchased over 300 mobile devices for use in all classrooms and have seen our facilities renovated or restored to almost new. 

We administered the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBAC) to every junior and over 1,400 Advanced Placement exams were given to our college bound students.  Over 95% of our sophomores passed the CAHSEE on their first try in March and we welcomed the largest freshman class in school history with over 756 students.  Freshman and sophomores engaged in the first ever “growth” assessment exam this year completing three portions of the MAP test from September to June.

Segerstrom continues to be a force in extra-curricular programs as well.  Our varsity teams captured 5 league titles: with strong CIF finishes in girls track, cross country, boys water polo, and girls softball.  Our performing arts department produced more shows and events in the history of the school and we continue to send our senior students to the top schools in the country with a variety of academic and extra-curricular scholarships.  It has been an AMAZING year!

I would like to wish the class of 2015 the best of luck in all their endeavors and challenge the upcoming classes to carry on their tradition of excellence throughout their remaining years.  We have more to come in the fall of 2015, so stay tuned for another incredible year at Segerstrom High School.  Have a safe and enjoyable summer but never stop learning and growing. 

Remember school starts September 1, 2015.

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:
