Mr. Jeff West, Principal

Welcome to California High School - Home of the Pintos!

On behalf of the entire Pinto community, I welcome you to our school. The mission of California High School is to “equip today’s children for tomorrow’s challenges."

An essential characteristic of student success is developing a strong partnership with parents, guardians, and the entire school community. I look forward to further strengthening those relationships.

We invite you to be active participants in your student’s learning and your student’s life. A vital part of success for our students is attendance and parental involvement. Because we value instructional time, every school day matters. This is a message that we hope is regularly communicated both at school and at home.

I am very proud of our dedicated staff and students, and I am excited that you have chosen California High School for your student’s education. Because of our highly-qualified staff, involved students, and highly supportive community, our school provides challenging academic courses, career and technical education courses, athletic programs, visual and performing arts courses, and numerous clubs. Our staff is committed to providing all students with a meaningful educational experience in a respectful environment that fosters academic, social, and emotional responsibility, learning, and growth.

If you have comments, questions, or if there is anything I can do to assist, please contact me at 573-796-4911 or email me at

I am sincerely honored to be the Principal of California High School. GO PINTOS!!

Jeff West
