Principal's Message

Principal Dave Flynn
Welcome to Yorba Linda High School, a 2013 California Distinguished High School, a 2015 Gold Ribbon/Exemplary Arts High School, and in August 2017 recognized by US News and World Report as one of the top high schools in the nation.
Yorba Linda High School is a four-year comprehensive high school that exceeds state and college board expectations in preparing our students for academic excellence while providing opportunities to excel in athletics, fine and performing arts, leadership, and the business-technology field. A visiting team from the California Department of Education in 2016 commended the staff and community for their continuing focus on maintaining enthusiasm and support for student success. Yorba Linda High School is proud to be recognized as a model school for the work that we have done to integrate the best practices for all students on a daily basis.
Our focus for 2017-2018 is connecting students to the total high school experience. Whether it is taking one of our 23 Advanced Placement courses, participating with our award winning Band, Orchestra, Choir, Yearbook/Newspaper, Theater Arts, Speech-Debate, Mock Trial, Science Olympiad, Academic Decathlon, Video Yearbook, or competing in one of our 24 men’s and women’s athletic teams, cheer and dance; we encourage students and parents to join one of the many organizations that proudly represent Yorba Linda High School on campus and in our community.
Welcome and GO MUSTANGS!
