Congratulations to all 465.
Is this the largest class? How do these numbers compare with previous years?
Good question, Resident. You may be right and I'm trying to track down a reliable answer. Last year Paly graduated "over 450." In 2011 it was 403.
District-wide enrollment this year was officially 12,396. The historical high in enrollment was about 15,000 in 1969 but at that time Palo Alto had three high schools. Cubberley opened in 1956 (closed in 1979) and Gunn opened in 1964.
Congratulations young adults!! You make our community proud!! Go forward and live your dreams.
Great ideas from the student speakers -- Jessica, Abby, Soo, and Justin! Thanks for your insight and promise.
And thank you Chris for sharing these ideas with the community at large with your reporting.
Paly Principal Phil Winston tells me they graduated 477 students in 2012.
Dataquest tells me they actually graduated 441.
SOME that attended this affair left one heck of a mess for the clean up crew when the graduation was over. I made an apology to two of the crew people having to pick up all the tossed Programs and litter that were left on chairs, trashed, stepped upon and blowing all around the chair and field area. What kind of thoughtless examples are they leaving for others? Disgusting.
Congrats class of 2013 .... My son is one of the graduates .... Congrats baby boi ... Luv u mucho
Why is it that no where can I find the colleges that graduates of Palo Alto High School attend. Can someone please send me a link to this info.
Chuck, if you're a member of the Palo Alto High School community as your signature states, you should be able to log onto Naviance and see all that info. There's a link to Naviance on the Paly home page, paly.net.
