Simi Valley High School is a secondary school located in Simi Valley, Californiamarker and was established in 1920 as the first high school in the valley. It is located in the City of Simi Valley in the County of Ventura, nestling in the shadow of the Santa Susana Mountains, adjacent to the San Fernando Valleymarker. Simi Valley High School has undergone several configurations over the years to become the campus it is today. The current campus was built in three phases during the 1960s. Based on the physical concept of "schools-within-a-school," Simi Valley High School (SVHS) was constructed with three instructional quads, each having an administrative area. The original design also included one main administration building.

Currently Simi Valley High is configured with five major instructional areas, a multipurpose building, a gym and dressing room facilities, a library, a counseling facility, an administration building, a new area of portable classrooms, a stadium and athletic fields, a new senior patio, and a band room with all different types of instruments. It was ranked as the 555th best high school according to MSNBC's Top 1000 High Schools. Simi Valley High School was named a "California Distinguished School" in 1996, 2000, and 2004 (four-year cycles of eligibility). The school is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) through the 2010 school year. The athletic teams are known as the Pioneers. The school's mascot is Herman, or Hermie, the Pioneer. Herman dates from around 1940 as the school's mascot. SVHS colors are maroon and gold. The school colors were originally purple and silver but were changed in the mid-1920s--probably to follow the colors of the University of Southern California.
