Buy a Brick, Baby!

Be a party of our history -- buy a brick and be remembered -- show your Tartar Pride!  The renovation of the campus allows an opportunity to build a lifelong memorial.  Leave a lasting mark of your time at Torrance High by purchasing a personalized brick to create a pathway leading to the Main Gym.

Here are the details . . .

Brick Sizes:

  • A standard 4” x 8” brick is $100 with up to 3 lines with 18 characters per line
  • An 8” x 8” paver is $200 with up to 6 lines with 18 characters per line (for an additional charge, a company logo may be added to the 8” x 8” paver, only)

To Order:

All brick sale proceeds will be used for the Torrance High School Centennial Celebration with donations tax deductible as allowed by law.  The Torrance Unified School District/Torrance High School Tax ID is 95-6003151.


Score a Piece of Floor! 
Torrance High School is a National Landmark, and you can own a piece of it!  We're selling pieces of the Torrance High School Main Gym floor. This floor was originally installed in 1962, and was removed during the renovation of the gym.

The middle of the floor, with the Tartar on it, was cut into 3" x 3" pieces and mounted in 5" x 7" shadow boxes -- complete with a nameplate and a Certificate of Authenticity. Each framed floor piece is being sold for $50 (if paying by cash/money order) or $54 (if using a credit card).

These one-of-a-kind, once-they-are-gone-they-are-gone collectables. 

To Order: Email your order to or call the Student Activities office at 310.533.4396, ext. 8031. Gym floor pieces can be mailed to you for an additional cost.
