Founded in 1895, the San Luis Coastal Unified School District has two four-year high schools: Morro Bay (MBHS) and San Luis Obispo (SLO) High Schools. Located in the coastal foothills of central California, the district is one of the highest-achieving public school systems in the state. San Luis Coastal guarantees students will receive the highest quality programs to become self-sufficient after high school.
Each campus is about 30 acres with amenities including swimming pools at each high school, performing arts spaces, new classrooms, tennis courts, and new tracks with more improvements starting in the summer of 2016.
