Many of Valencia’s buildings, including the auditorium and cafeteria, were built during the Depression by the WPA.[citation needed]

Today the school serves a student body of approximately 2,500 students living in southern Placentia and northeast Anaheim. It is one of four high schools in the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD).[citation needed] Beginning in the summer of 2010, Valencia underwent a series of renovations and construction projects, including a new 17-classroom building, modernized school breezeway and administration building, and new bleachers at Bradford Stadium. A modernized “quad” was also among the list of projects, serving as a center of campus life and a common location of school activities. Funding for these improvements was provided by Measure A, which was approved by local voters in 2008.[2]

Valencia is the International Baccalaureate (IB) magnet school in PYLUSD. The school’s website claims it is one of the best IB programs in Orange County, CA.[3] The school also hosts an advanced technology program called Val Tech, in which students must complete an internship during the summer between their junior and senior years.[4]

The school’s mascot is the Tiger, and its team colors are blue and gold.

Kraemer Middle School is almost part of the campus, with only a long skinny parking lot separating the two.
