Armijo High School is a public secondary school located in Fairfield, California. It is the oldest of the three high schools in the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School district, the other two being Fairfield High School and Angelo Rodriguez High School. It is named after the Armijo family, who purchased one of the original six land grants in Solano County awarded to General Mariano Vallejo. The school serves about 2600 students in grades 9 to 12, as one of the three main Secondary Schools in the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District.


The school started in 1891 with 30 students in a single classroom located in the Crystal Elementary School building. In 1893, separate wooden building was built for use as the high school. In 1915, the school moved to a large stone building on Union Avenue in downtown Fairfield that is now used as the Solano County courthouse. There it stayed for nearly 50 years, with construction completed in 1964 on a newer facility located on Washington Street, roughly two blocks from the Union Avenue location.
