Cabrillo High School is located on California's Central Coast, in the city of Lompoc.

History

The school was founded in 1965 by the Lompoc Unified School District. Built to serve the residents of Vandenberg Air Force Base, Vandenberg Village, and the northern Lompoc Valley, Cabrillo answered the sudden population boom during the late 1950s and 1960s, a result of the booming space program at Vandenberg. Named for the early Spanish explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, the school board of Lompoc chose the Conquistador to be the mascot of the new high school in the early 1960s, with the black and gold of the first Spanish Californian flags as the school colors.

Administration

The first school year on campus was 1965-66, with Camillo Wilde as the principal. Wilde would leave during the second school year to assume the position of Lompoc Unified School District Superintendent, and he was succeeded by assistant principal Robert Bickford, who would serve until the late 1970s. Wilde would return for a second stint as principal in 1978. There have been six principals since Wilde's retiring in the mid 1980s: Dr. Debra Bradley (1986-1993), Mr. John Lemon (1993-1999), Mr. Jeff Carlovsky (1999-2003), Dr. Fred Manzo (2003-2005) and Ms. Betty McCallum (2005-present).
