About West Sonoma County Union High School District

The West Sonoma County Union High School District is located in Western Sonoma County stretching from the rural orchards and dairies north of Petaluma on up the coast to the historic reaches of Fort Ross. 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.

The District lies within the world famous wine, grape, and apple producing region of Sonoma County. 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. A growing trend sees more families moving north from the congestion and pace of the larger urban areas of the San Francisco Bay.
