Click to Enlarge Village Oaks High School (Alternative) - A number of years ago state law was passed that requires school districts to provide a continuation program in districts with a high school enrollment over 100 students. In response, Lincoln Unified Continuation High School was started in November 1966 The summer of 1973 it was decided that the name, location, and principal of Lincoln Continuation High School would be changed. Mr. Dick Gaedtke became the principal and the school was moved to its present location at the corner of Harrisburg and McClellan. The school was subsequently renamed Sture Larsson High School after one of Lincoln Unified's most respected principals, Sture Larsson, who had died years earlier after serving as principal of three of Lincoln Unified's schools.
Sture Larsson High School remains at this location, serving 100 students with six full-time teachers, three part-time paraprofessionals, a staff secretary, and a counselor and principal shared with the John McCandless High School. After 28 years, Larsson was completely remodeled during the 2002 - 2003 school year.
