Central Valley High School

Colors: Green & Maroon

Motto: GO HAWKS!

Central Valley High School was built in 2004 in response to the recognition of the community of the need for a second comprehensive high school in Ceres. 


CVHS currently houses approximately 1,664 students, freshmen through seniors.  The first senior class graduated in June 2008.


As the newest high school, the campus includes an agricultural technology shop, a newly built science wing (2011), soccer fields, tennis courts, multi-purpose room/cafeteria, a large capacity gymnasium, administration building and so much more.


CVHS students currently enjoy great features of this campus, that include: the latest technology for students in the computer labs and science classes, a state-of-the-art gymnasium with a sound system that rivals those at large stadiums, tennis courts and athletic facilities that are second to none in the area and a cafeteria that contains the largest refrigerators imaginable.


The CVHS library is a state-of-the-art facility that provides students a great place to study and learn. Recently, the library acquired comfortable oversized chairs for students to enjoy when seeking a quiet reading experience.  A display case for student art work has been installed with plans to expand the display of student art work to the walls.


This modern library also provides students a large area for study that can accommodate over 70 students.  16 computers and 4 online catalogues give students convenient access to books in the library by title, subject or topic.  The students also have access to color and black/white printers and a designated color copy machine.  Future plans include, the addition of college pendants to hang from the ceiling representing the colleges graduating students attend.  


In August 2012, Central Valley High School students began attending classes in a new two-story 16 classroom addition to the existing instructional wing.  Science and technology are the focused areas of instruction for this addition. Science labs are designed to provide students with hands-on learning experiences through the use of high-tech equipment and materials. This instructional wing is located on the north side of the cam­pus, adjacent to the existing library building. Students and staff are able to access the building from the library or through exterior entrances. The rear of the new instructional wing faces Service Road. The location of the addition provides a visual barrier to the inside of the campus, increas­ing the level of safety and security for students and staff.
