Westlake High School, often known simply as Westlake or Westlake High is a public high school in Thousand Oaks, California, United States, hosting grades 9–12. It is often mistakenly thought to be in the neighboring city of Westlake Village. It is one of four high schools in the Conejo Valley Unified School District, consistently has significantly above average API and SAT scores, and 96% of graduating seniors go on to attend some type of college or further education. It also offers a unique cadaver-based Advanced Anatomy class for seniors.[2]

Its mascot is the warrior; although previously a Native American Indian warrior, the logo was changed to a simple "W" and spear in order to prevent discrimination. Its school colors are blue, orange, and white. The school was founded in 1979 and is currently headed by principal Ron Lipari.

The first graduating class was the class of 1980. The first principal was Mr. William Albers. All students entering Westlake High School in 1979 signed a charter, which sits in the office today. Middle schools that feed into Westlake include Colina Middle School and Los Cerritos Middle School.
