Westminster High School is a public secondary school (grades 9-12) operated by Adams County School District 50 in Westminster, Adams County, Colorado, United States.[1]

At the end of 1996, it was announced that all incoming freshmen in the '08-'09 school year, as well as all sophomores in the district who currently attended either Ranum or Westminster High School, would be attending the current Westminster High School campus until the new building was finished, for the '10-'11 school year. The district then announced the new school name would also be Westminster High School and the new school colors would be teal, black, and silver, with the wolves as a mascot. The new building location is on almost the same lot as the current building. Features include three multi-purpose basketball courts, an indoor track, a lecture hall, and a 725-seat theatre, all within a 375,000-square-foot (34,800 m2) building.
