Warilla High School is a New South Wales Department of Education and Training (DET) owned school located in the Illawarra local government area City of Shellharbour.

The school is located in the suburb of Barrack Heights and there were suggestions of renaming the school to reflect the change in primary feeder schools (Flinders Public School, Warilla Public School, Shellharbour Public School, Barrack Heights Public School). In early to late 2009 Warilla High underwent a major reconstruction with the funding of 6 new Science Labs.

As of 2010 Warilla High School currently has an enrolment of over 1200 students making it one of the largest high schools in the region.
