History

Burlingame High School in Burlingame, California

In order to meet the growing population of students, the school was opened in December 1923, under the name of "San Mateo High School, Burlingame Branch". The school took in students from Burlingame, Hillsborough, Millbrae, and San Bruno. [1] Initial enrollment consisted of 350 students and 30 teachers. As a branch school of San Mateo High School, extracurricular organizations were shared between the schools. There was a single band, football team, and other athletic teams with student members from both schools. [1] Within 10 years the enrollment of the school had increased to 494 boys and 474 girls, totalling 968 pupils, a figure close to the school's original design capacity. In 1927 the school name was officially changed to Burlingame High School.
