Calabasas High School is a four-year high school in Calabasas, California, United States.

History[edit]

During the 2006–07 school year Calabasas High School was recognized with the Blue Ribbon School Award of Excellence by the United States Department of Education,[3] the highest award the Department of Education gives.[4][5]

As of the 2008–09 school year, the school had an enrollment of 2,130 students and 77.8 classroom teachers (on a FTE basis) for a student-teacher ratio of 25.6.[2]

Calabasas High was ranked #776 in Newsweek's "Top 1000 U.S. High Schools" poll.[when?][6]

In 2011, three students were arrested for spray-painting racist and anti-semitic graffiti at the campus, targeted at specific students and teachers.[7]

The school plays its football games at Keith Ritchie Field, an open-air stadium located in Calabasas, California, with a capacity of approximately 3,000. The stadium is the home of the Coyotes – Calabasas High School's American football, track and field and soccer teams. It is also formerly the home field for the USL Premier Development League club, the San Fernando Valley Quakes.

In 2013 students chose a same-sex couple for homecoming queen and queen.[8]
