About HHS » History


Hemet High School (formerly known as Hemet Union High School until 1965) is a public high school of approximately 2,400 students located in East Hemet, California and is part of the Hemet Unified School District. The school was first founded in 1894 and has been moved to different campus sites in the past. The school has been operating at its present campus site since 1972. Hemet High is accredited by the WASC Accrediting Commission for Schools. The campus has since began construction expansion again and was completed in 2012.

Five graduates of Hemet High School have died in the Iraq and Afghani wars. In California, only Buchanan High School in Clovis has lost more graduates.
