         Background:

    Westmoor High School is a large, comprehensive, and diverse public school of approximately 1,729 students. Westmoor High School is located in western Daly City just blocks from the Pacific Ocean and situated on an expansive 66-acre campus. Accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) with a "6-Clear" accreditation term--the most desirable term granted by WASC--Westmoor High School offers its students a selection of courses hailed for its breadth and depth, a healthy school environment, a dedicated community of teachers and counselors, and a professional support staff so they can effectively pursue their academic and professional goals. In 2009, the California Department of Education honored Westmoor by bestowing the school with the California Distinguished ­School award.
