West Ranch High School is a public high school in Stevenson Ranch, California. Bob Vincent was the school's principal from its opening in 2004 until his resignation in 2014, with Mark Crawford taking his place. The school mascot is the Wildcat, and navy blue and gold are the school's official colors. The Paw Print is the school's official newspaper.

West Ranch High School is part of the William S. Hart High School District. During its first year of operation (2004-2005 school year), the school was located on the campus of Rancho Pico Junior High School, housing only 9th grade students and faculty. It has since moved to its own campus, housing students 9th through 12th grade. The class of 2008 was the first graduating class in the history of the high school.

West Ranch High School has been the filming site for several television shows and movies, The Unit, and the movie Stay Cool.[3]


On October 22, 2008 the school was surrounded by the "Magic" fire. The fire did not get any closer than the gates and the hills bordering the school. The school was already closed that Monday due to the fire risk, however the school was closed for an extra day due to unhealthy air conditions. The school suffered smoke damage to the gym and other buildings.
