CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION FOR TORRANCE HIGH SCHOOL
On September 11, 1917, Torrance High School opened its doors. Over the last almost 100 years, countless Tartars have walked the iconic halls of Torrance High.
We are excited to announce that plans for our special Centennial Celebration are underway. We invite you to add your name to our e-mail list so you will be included as events and activities leading up to and including a one-of-a-kind Tartar Family Reunion in September of 2017 are finalized.
