The school opened in 1896 as Compton Union High School and was later re-established as Compton Senior High School in the 1950s after Compton College separated from the high school district and opened its new campus at 1111 East Artesia Boulevard in 1953.
During the 1960s, there was a dramatic transition from a white student body to one which was predominantly African-American. Today, Compton High School is over eighty percent Latino as immigrants settled in South Los Angeles.
Compton College's mascot name is the Tartars, named after the Turkic Tatars, so the mascot name for Compton High School became the Tartar Babies. The mascot itself is "Baby Tartar" who wears a diaper and carries a big sword.
