First opened in 1873, Los Angeles High School Los Angeles High School is the oldest public high school in the Southern California Region. Early buildings commissioned to house the Los Angeles High School were among the architectural jewels of the city, and were strategically placed at the summit of a hill. The building in this photograph was completed in 1917.
