West Ranch has excellent academic opportunities. I have met many teachers here over the years and every one of them has been positive, enthusiastic and passionate about their subject. It also has programs that are not available in other area high schools as well as a huge selection of clubs. You will also find the parents in this area care about their kids education which makes a big difference. We are very lucky to be part of an outstanding school.

Apparently the school took parents comments seriously and replaced rude staff! (That was two years ago). I found them to be very accommodating and helpful and get things done. Counselors do a great job returning calls right away- atleast with us.

I believe school does well on test scores because the community and parents care about the child's education and this school seems to have alot of foreign born kids who bring their hard work ethics to the school and where education is important. I also disagree with previous comments that staff are rude as I experienced polite and nice staff. I did encounter a rude principal outside of school though. He acted like he was the king because he was the principal. I don't think he realized that he doesn't pay us but we pay him his salary and shouldnt act so noble and arrogant. But then when I see him on campus he seems different. He reminds me of a man with two faces. I do know he appears to be politcially conservative and disagree with a lot of his comments he has made in private to some of us parents.

this is a great school however i must agree with the majority of the complaints and say this office staff is horrid, the principals assistant is arrogant as they come. Doesn't even care to look people in the eyes. maybe that why its best to employee people of this country. grow up and realize that you are here to work for our children and to accommodate us as parents. Many of us get the feeling this foreigner in particular thinks she does us a favor

Spotless campus! If you have an opportunity to send your child here, do NOT hesitate!

Academically, I've been extremely pleased with the level of education my child has received at this school. Excellent school, great teachers. I agree with other reviews that the office staff's attitude could use some improvement. Overall very pleased with West Ranch and consider ourselves fortunate to attend.

We have been at this school for 3 years and are thrilled! My child has been thoroughly challenged academically, the principal is a man of character who leads the school with a real emphasis on achievement in every sense of the word and the teachers are effective, available and interested. We are so fortunate to get a private school education at a public school!

Very much agree that staff is rude. Had an awful experience with registrar there. They need to replace staff. I hope they change out as this will give the school overall a better reputation as students are hardworking. Most teachers are decent too. I am wondering if I am making a good choice of letting my child go to this school with rude office personnel. I hope it doesnt' trickle down to the culture of the school as a whole.

I also agree that the office staff are very rude and a bit on the lazy side. I asked an principal's assitant if she addressed an issues and her response was " i don't go to that side of the campus and that's not my job." I guess if it's not your job you don't have to do it? Go figure. and I noticed a lack of pride on the campus with the principals assistants .The campus is litter with trash.

We were also disappointed in this school. The office staff is very rude and that should have been a wake up call to us when we first registered there.

We have been very disappointed in this high school. Teacher quality has been very lacking. Teachers have not been knowledgeable in their fields or in their methods of instruction. Communication with teachers is difficult. Counseling was lacking. Office staff is generally speaking, rude.

WRHS is an excellent school with very high API scores. You even have Chaminade teachers referring Chaminade students here for summer school because of our excellent teachers (I personally know this as a fact). WRHS is WACS accredited and has very good teachers. I am happy I switched my teenagers from Chaminade H.S. to WRHS because I feel our teachers are better qualified than some of theirs. The Prinicipal Mr. Vincent is a strong leader and I think he cares a lot about the students. The learning program is what you as a parent and your children decide to do with their education - Their counselors are great and make sure your teenagers take the correct classes to attend a 4-yr university; they listen to what the parents expect for their teenagers education.

Could not be more happier than I am with West Ranch. One son is a Jr. the other is a Freshmen. Both are doing exceptionally well in all aspects of school life. The teachers are great, especially the Health teacher Mrs. Sage, Spanish Mr. Helm. Very happy with there soccer program.

Excellent school. Their music program is one of the best onrd if not the best. This is a new school and their marching band became champions in 2007 within their division. Their academic program is one of the best in the Santa Clarita Valley. So glad we moved to the Santa Clarita Valley. Very safe community for our kids.

Great school! All staff were responsive to questions and concerns, and the school's academic achievements speak for themselves. Our daughter is proud to have gone there and be a part of the first graduating class, despite there being several established schools in the valley which she could have attended. If you have the chance to send your child to this school, DO NOT HESITATE!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
