The mission of West Hills High School is to graduate critical thinkers and problem-solvers who contribute positively to society as productive, responsible citizens.


Hello Wolf Pack Students and Families:

Here is the latest information we have from the San Diego County Public Health Department regarding our protocols and procedures for Covid-19. We want to THANK YOU for your proactive consideration of everyone in our school community by keeping your student home when they do not feel well and / or are showing possible symptoms of Covid-19, seasonal cold, seasonal flu or intestinal flu.

You may have seen or read the Superintendent's message regarding optional home Covid testing kits for students provided by California. Please see THIS MEMO for more information.

We appreciate your continued use of face masks on campus for everyone whenever we are indoors and at ALL indoor events (athletics in Gym included).

Attendance reminder: Thank you to students who stay home when feeling sick. If you have general cold and flu like symptoms (with or without a fever), please stay home and let the attendance office know by calling our 24 hour attendance line at 619-956-0424.

"We are One, We are the Pack" in making it through this difficult public health crisis. Let's keep at it Wolf Pack...our teens, faculty, staff, and community are worth it!

Tips for Student Success

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As we get ready to start the second semester of the school year, we want to emphasize that successful students benefit from a strong school-home partnership. After 18 months of blended and distance learning, some of our students have needed time to readjust to the routine of school.

Teachers and schools are doing everything they can to help students be successful. However, each student must take personal responsibility for their education. We have created the Believe and Achieve Tips for Student Success resource to emphasize the mindset needed to succeed.

Additionally, we wanted to encourage you to continue to take an active role in your child’s education. Here are some ways you can help.

  • Make sure students are at school and on time. Attendance is the foundation of success in school.

  • Students need to learn to manage their time and workload. This is part of becoming a high school student.

  • Check Infinite Campus and Schoology for grades and attendance.

  • Check-in with your student regularly - have them show you what they are doing.

You can find the Achieve and Believe Tips for Student Success in THIS DOCUMENT.

Multi-year Calendar

Hello Wolf Pack Students and Families:

Recently our school board approved a three year calendar. For ease of reading and planning for students and families, we brought them together in one document for you. If you could please plan your family time around our announced summer, Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring breaks, this would help your student stay on top of classroom instruction and learning. We know this is not always possible, but we just wanted to share this for possible advance planning.

Multi-year Calendar for Students and Parents: 2022-23; 2023-24; 2024-25.

If so, we would like to invite you to attend the Scholarship Club that is hosted by the Counseling Department. At the scholarship club, we will introduce you to scholarship opportunities and provide time to work on scholarship applications under the guidance of a counseling staff member. For additional information, please contact Ms. Womack in the Counseling Office. The club meets Mondays during lunch and period 7 in the College/Career Center (L-1) located across from the library.

Loss of Privilege Policy

Loss of Privilege (LOP) List: This exists to support the idea that our primary function is “Academics First” and that student behaviors and choices need to prioritize attendance and following school rules. Students may earn their way off of the LOP list through attendance at detention and / or Saturday school after talking with their Assistant Principal. They can also lose a privilege that was granted (i.e. serving Saturday School to be eligible to purchase a Dance Ticket, but then repeat actions (or new actions) that put them back on LOP so that attending Dance is no longer available to them and a dance ticket refund is issued). All students begin Semester 2 off the list. Totals from Semester 1 do not count for Semester 2.

See our Loss of Privilege Policy HERE.

Mental Health Resources

Our Teacher Librarian Mrs. Sannwald, has created a wonderful Mending Matters Resource Library page! Click HERE to check it out!

If you are in need of any mental health resources, please reach out to your Guidance Counselor or our Mending Matters resources linked above.
