Aptos High School is a comprehensive secondary school in Aptos, California, USA in the Pajaro Valley Unified School District. Aptos High serves the communities of Rio Del Mar, Corralitos, Seacliff, Seascape, La Selva Beach, Buena Vista and Watsonville.


Historically, Aptos has been one of the largest high schools in the county, but recently other district schools Watsonville High School and Pajaro Valley High School have surpassed its enrollment.

In addition to standard curriculum, Aptos High School offers video production, computer technology, and various other courses. Recently some of the music classes, such as guitar, were dropped due to cuts in the California school budget.

As of 2008 Aptos High School has a new Performing Arts Center, where school plays are performed. It also has a neighboring second gymnasium used for multiple sports, such as basketball and volleyball.

The campus includes a popular disc golf course that is open to the public outside of school hours.

In 2010, the Mariners hired Coach Randy Blankenship from Madera to be their new head football coach. Since then, the Mariners football team has been to the playoffs every year. They have won five consecutive league championship and three consecutive section championships. The Girls Cross-Country team has won eleven section titles and two CIF State Championships. The Girls Volleyball team has qualified for the section playoffs for the past 26 years in a row. The Girls Track & Field team owns the second longest dual-meet win streak in California history. Between 1996 and 2005, they won 118 consecutive dual meets.
