Nort Thornton was a revered teacher and coach at Paly for 25 years, and his record is unmatched.  His water polo and swimming teams were nationally ranked.  His water polo teams were league champions for 25 consecutive years, and were undefeated from 1948-51, and his swimming teams were also league champions for many years.  Join us in honoring this extraordinary man and his accomplishments.

Welcome to the Palo Alto High School Campus Tour! 

Visit Paly and enjoy the tour in person, or on your phone or tablet. 

The campus map lists tour locations. Move to a location and click on the corresponding information on the map to learn more about Paly’s past, present and future. But first, a little history. Palo Alto incorporated in 1894 and owes its existence to David Starr Jordan, the then President of Stanford University who offered the 30 acres at $1.00/acre, so it’s no surprise that its earliest residents sought the best education for their children. 

Palo Alto High School March to the New School on December 24, 1918. Watch the video for some history!
