Campus

The present campus of Saint Mary's High School opened on September 6, 1956. Saint Mary's High School dates back to 1876, having been located at several places in the city of Stockton, and having served the community well. The growing student population was a recognition that there was a pressing need for a larger school that could serve the needs of the community.

In the opening year of the present Saint Mary's High School, located on a 25-acre lot, the campus included the administration building, four wings of classrooms, a cafeteria, and ample playing fields. The administrative staff of the school included Father Xavier Harris, O.F.M., Principal, and Sister M. Colette, O.P., Vice-Principal, four Franciscan Priests, ten Dominican Sisters, and seven lay teachers. The student enrollment was 496. An academic and commercial curriculum served to supplement the students with classes in art, music appreciation, and glee club, to provide a cultural and liberal arts education for the students. Auxiliary Bishop Hugh A. Donohue of San Francisco presided at the formal dedication of the new Saint Mary's High School on May 19, 1957.
