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

California Teacher of the Year 2022

CONGRATULATIONS to our very own math and engineering teacher, Tiffany Jokerst for being selected as California Teacher of the Year 2022! Announced on Friday by the State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond, Tiffany is a great ambassador for education. We are so very proud of ALL of teachers and staff and Tiffany IS "the West Hills Way" through and through! Check out this piece from NBC San Diego or this Union Tribune article. Interesting fact...the Grossmont District had a finalist for State Teacher of the Year last year, Mr. Tweet, Social Science teacher from El Capitan HS, and now we have Mrs. Jokerst. We are the only school district in California to have had two back to back Finalists (and do not forget our very own Ms. Worley, State Teacher of the Year Finalist from four years ago!) GUHSD has GREAT teaching and learning!!

Homecoming Dress

Do you or someone you know need assistance with a Homecoming outfit? See Mrs. Lenhoff in the Assistant Principals' office as she may be able to provide some assistance thru an angel donor. (Supplies are limited)

Student ID cards

Are you coming to our next home football game vs. Santana on October 22nd and/or the Homecoming Dance on October 23rd? If you are, YOU MUST have a CURRENT WHHS student ID to enter the stadium and dance.

If you lost your ID or do not have one, go to the Finance Office to get a replacement. There will be no exceptions at the gate if you do not have a valid school ID.

Winter Sports Tryout Information

Are you interested in trying out for a sport this winter? Remember, you must be cleared before you can try out for a sport. Also, you will not be cleared IF you are ON the Loss of Privilege list.

See THIS DOCUMENT for tryout information, dates, and how to get cleared!

Questions? Please contact Assistant Principal John Hoadley.

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 Homecoming Dance Ticket, but then repeat actions (or new actions) that put them back on LOP so that attending Homecoming Dance is no longer available to them and a dance ticket refund is issued).

See our Loss of Privilege Policy HERE.

Air Force ROTC Program

Hey Pack! Come to the pit at lunch today to learn more about the U.S. Air Force ROTC program. All college visits are open to any student at West Hills!
