About Sis Boom Bah!

For 130 years, Los Gatos High School has remained one of the town’s most iconic institutions. The historic trajectory of LGHS has run parallel to some of the most significant social and cultural events in this, and the last two, centuries. From its small town roots and the settling of the American West in 1887, to the optimism of the second industrial revolution at the turn of the 20th century; the rejection of social norms in the Roaring Twenties to tenacious patriotism in supporting the war effort against fascism during World War II, LGHS has played a major role in the community. In the 1950s, the Wildcat legacy continued in the era of seemingly unlimited prosperity which birthed Rock ’n’ Roll. LGHS survived the social upheavals of the tumultuous 1960s, catching its breath in time for the peaceful, easy feeling of the following decade while in the 1980s, students in the MTV generation shifted from a “peace and love” mentality to a “me first” mindset in an era of opulent excess. By the closing of the 20th century, and into this new millennium, multiple generations of Los Gatos teenagers left indelible footprints up and down the hallways of the Los Gatos High School and the town itself.

Join us as we explore what it’s meant to be a Los Gatos Wildcat over the course of 130 years. In this three-dimensional Yearbook style exposition, you will learn about and relive highlights of Wildcat dominance in sports, arts, student activities, and the social events that created lasting friendships and a distinct campus community. Experience 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.
