<p><a href="http://elcerritogauchos.net/">El Cerrito High</a> is the city's only high school and is one of seven high schools in the <a href="http://www.wccusd.net/default.aspx">West Contra Costa Unified School District</a>. The school serves students from El Cerrito, Richmond, San Pablo, El Sobrante, Hercules, Kensington and Pinole.</p> <p>The old school building was deemed earthquake-unsafe, and funds raised from a 2004 voter-approved construction bond financed the school's new building, which opened in January 2009.</p> <p>The school offers AP classes, <a href="http://www.elcerritogauchos.net/?q=clubs">many student clubs</a> and a technologically advanced new theater. The school nickname is "Gauchos," a type of South American cowboy. Several former students have become well-known professional athletes, musicians, performers and authors.</p> <p>The <a href="http://elcerritogauchos.net/about/school-profilebrag-sheet">school's website</a> listed 1,312 students as of November 2012.
