History

The union high school district began in 1882 when George and William Chaffey, the founders of Ontario, began the Chaffey College of Agriculture and an on-campus secondary school with assistance from the University of Southern California. Ironically, the university abandoned the agricultural school while Chaffey was away in Australia, so he pursued litigation and eventually won.[7] In 1901 control of the secondary school was given to the local community and it was named Ontario High School, only to be renamed Chaffey High School in 1911. It would be the only secondary school in the area until end of World War II when an increase in Ontario's population prompted additional schools.[1]

Upland High School, Montclair High School, Alta Loma High School, and Ontario High School were built between 1955 and 1967.[1] Another school did not open until Etiwanda High School in 1987. Upland High School left the district and became part of the Upland Unified School District in 1991. Shortly after, Rancho Cucamonga High School opened in 1992. Funds from Measure X, a $128 million dollar General Obligation Bond, allowed the district to build additional schools.[8] Colony High School and Los Osos High School opened in the Fall of 2002.[1]

The District enrolls students whom desire a high school education but cannot speak English to Newcomer School for one year in order to learn enough English to complete the high school curriculum, graduate and continue their education.[1]

Schools

The Chaffey Joint Union High School District is a 9-12 District that enrolls more than 20,000 students, has eight comprehensive high schools, two continuation high schools, one community day school, and one alternative education school.[5][6]
