“The mission of the West Sonoma County Union High School District is to
provide high quality instruction as student achievement is our top priority.”
Founded in 1908 as Analy Union High School, the West Sonoma County Union High School District (WSCUHSD) is located in Western Sonoma County stretching from the rural orchards and dairies north of Petaluma through the Pacific coast region and up to the historic beaches of Fort Ross. The District lies within the world famous wine, grape, and apple producing region of Sonoma County. The largest residential area in the District is the city of Sebastopol, located fifty miles north of San Francisco and 10 miles west of Santa Rosa. North of Sebastopol the communities of Forestville, Cazadero, Graton, Guerneville, Occidental, and Monte Rio offer a slower paced life style for middle-income families who work in the area.
Our high schools serve students in 9th thru 12th grade and have a combined enrollment of approximately 1,900 students. WSCUHSD is the home of two comprehensive high schools, Analy and El Molino; one continuation high school, Laguna; and an independent study program. The District is also the LEA for the West Sonoma County Special Education and Student Services Consortium. Students who enter the District’s high schools come from diverse experiences in ten elementary districts spread across the western part of the county. Strong parent and community support for education is evident as WSCUHSD students traditionally surpass state and national averages in academic achievement tests and college entrance exams. 27% of our students transfer to the District from neighboring areas attracted by interests in arts, culinary, college prep, agriculture and many more enriching student activities.
