Hayward High School was originally established between 4th and 5th Streets and Minnesota and Wisconsin Avenues in downtown Hayward. The building still stands, and is occupied by the DMV office, among other tenants.
HHS' strong commitment to academics is reflected in the abilities of its graduates, and in several awards presented by independent review boards. Hayward Community Schools are recognized as offering "What Parents Want": academic strength, accreditation, recognition of excellence by the United States Department of Education or another national foundation, competitive salaries for teachers, a commitment to instruction evidenced by expenditures on instruction and on library/media services, and small class sizes. Hayward High School received a Bronze Award from US News and World Report, indicating performance in the upper 9% of high schools nationally. 
Clubs and organizations
Student involvement is encouraged by the establishment of several clubs and organizations. Forensics, Skills USA, band, marching band, jazz band, Yearbook Club, Drama Club, Cross-Age Peer Educators, Class Board, a poetry club, Character education, and many other organizations are run by students, staff, or combinations of students and staff.
Character Education is a club that involves the whole school district. High school students get together and plan fundraisers to help out the community and help the younger grades especially elementary and intermediate students. For example in the past we have hosted a food drive, collected toys for Toys for Tots, and gathered essentials for a women's shelter in our community. We also go to the Elementary and Intermediate Schools and help teacher when needed. Examples would be holiday parties, making gingerbread houses, and going ice skating at the Hayward Sports Center with fifth graders.
Students at Hayward High School have opportunities to play many sports at a competitive level, under WIAA. Fall sports include men's soccer, men's football, women's golf, women's volleyball, and co-ed cross-country running. Winter sports include men's and women's basketball, men's and women's hockey, and co-ed cross-country skiing. Spring sports include men's baseball, women's softball, men's golf, women's soccer, and co-ed track and field.
School Song Lyrics
All hail to thee our staunch old Hayward high
The grandest school and here's the reason why:
Our team fights hard and fair to win the game
To keep our banners high, with fighting spirit "do-or-die"
That makes our school stand for the best
With true and noble hearts we'll stand the test
And cheer the school that brings our success, our success
H-A-Y-W-A-R-D, H-A-Y-W-A-R-D, H-A-Y-W-A-R-D HAYWARD HIGH!"
