Sis Boom Bah! The Life and Times of Los Gatos High School


Sis Boom Bah The Life and Times of Los Gatos High School LGHS NUMU exhibition 2018.jpg

About Sis Boom Bah!

This three-dimensional yearbook-style exhibition explores what it has meant to be a LGHS Wildcat over the course of the school's 100 years+ history.  Visitors to the exhibition will experience highlights of Wildcat dominance in sports, the arts, student activities, and the social events that created lasting friendships and a distinct campus community.  Visitors will also learn about the evolution of high school events and traditions over the last century, and check in on notable alumni who left their mark locally and on the world stage. In addition the exhibition will explore the history of the teenager, a word that came into the American lexicon in the early 20th century.

Visitors don’t have to be a graduate or current student at Los Gatos High School to appreciate the exhibition because it is as much a history of the school as it is a history of the Town, its residents and the common experience of being a teenager, responding to local and global trends, politics, lifestyles and culture.

Sis Boom Bah: The Life and Times of Los Gatos High School is generously supported by: The Town Los Gatos, The History Club of Los Gatos and the Los Gatos Community Foundation. Additional support provided by: The Rotary Club of Los Gatos and the Kirkorian Family Foundation.

Concept development: Amy Long
