Message from the Principal

Dear San Ysidro High School Community ,

By now I am sure you are aware that I will be leaving SYHS. It is a very sad time for me as this has been my “ home “ for the past 16 years. I am proud of the accomplishments of our school and recognize the efforts have been a direct result of many  people working together for the betterment of our students. We have established a family culture that has embraced involvement by teachers ,parents , students and community members that cannot be duplicated anywhere. We have many wonderful accomplishments in and out of the classroom that have brought positive recognitions to San Ysidro ; 2013 and 2017 NASSP BreakThrough School , National AVID Demonstration School , 2017 Silver Award / U.S. News & World Report  , 2 CIF baseball championships ,and 2 Men’s CIF soccer championships. Our graduates are making a difference at universities such as Stanford, Yale , U.C.L.A. , San Diego State, and Georgetown to name a few.   I am eternally grateful to everyone for making these past 16 years the most memorable in my career and I thank you with much gratitude and affection. Viva Sidro !!!!


Mr. Hector Espinoza
