The Vikings of Vanden High School are Scholars & Champions!

Vanden High School is rich in academic tradition. Earning a “10” in the state’s Academic Performance Index similar school ranking, Vanden High School is one of the top ranked high schools in California and is fortunate to be the highest performing comprehensive high school in Solano County with an API routinely above 800.

Students have the opportunity to participate in a number of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities that span a wide spectrum of student interests. Activities include Championship Athletics, Career & Technical Courses (Automotive, Computer Assisted Drafting, Virtual Enterprise, Careers with Children, etc.), Visual/Performing Arts, Leadership (ASB), Music, JROTC, Robotics, and Academic Decathlon...just to name a few.

Our comprehensive classes are extensive and varied with four World Languages taught through 4 levels (including Latin) as well as AP courses in English Language Arts, mathematics, social science/history and science. We continue to refine and adjust our course offerings to meet the needs of our learning community and we will continue to serve and challenge our students to excel in the classroom and beyond.

Vanden High has also benefited from new and robust technology infrastructures and new instructional technology.

Vanden High received the designation of “Distinguished School” in 2009 by the California Department of Education and our Robotics Program has received the 3rd “Golden Bell” award presented to Vanden High by the California School Boards Association.

The Vanden community has identified academic achievement, personal growth, community responsibility, and employability as attributes that we believe are integral learning experiences in a high school setting. Using these traits as a cornerstone in our mission statement, our educational community developed a slogan to remind us of our purpose: Vikings set the PACE!

Welcome to Vanden High School.
