West Humber Collegiate Institute (WHCI, West Humber) is a public high school in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is situated at the corner of Martin Grove Road and John Garland Blvd., just south of Finch Avenue West in the neighbourhood of Rexdale. Opened in 1966, the institute is owned and operated by the Toronto District School Board. Prior to 1998, it was overseen by the Etobicoke Board of Education.

Since 1998, the school has annually awarded the Pamela M. Prinold Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship is given to a student who demonstrates community involvement, making a difference in their community, and strength in volunteering and leadership – all qualities that Pam Prinold was renowned for.
