History[edit]

Calabasas High School

Calabasas High School was established in 1975 as the second high school in the Las Virgenes Unified School District.[4]

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,[5] the highest award the Department of Education gives.[6][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 football, track and field and soccer teams. It was 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]
