About this item
In 1917, when Torrance School first opened, the city of Torrance was developing a reputation as an industrial powerhouse. The new school initially served all school-age children in one building. By 1923, the elementary students had their own school, and Torrance High School stood as the only high school until the 1950s. As the population of the city grew, so did the campus of Torrance High. The rich history of Torrance High School is filled with academic and athletic successes, as well as storied alumni like Louis Zamperini and Ted Tanouye, who served the United States during World War II. In the 1990s, the highly recognizable Main Building served as a set for several television shows, including Beverly Hills, 90210 and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and movies, such as She’s All That and Not Another Teen Movie.
