Principal's Message

Principal Dear Wildcat Parents and Community,

As the Principal of Calistoga Junior/Senior High School and Palisades High School, I truly believe that our staff, students, and community are committed to success in academics, athletics, and co-curricular activities. This success happens because of our students' strong work ethic, our caring and exceptional staff, and a very supportive community. Calistoga High School students experience success when they are committed to school, maintain good attendance, come prepared for class, and participate in school-wide activities.

Calistoga High School has a strong tradition of high academic achievement. Our graduates leave Calistoga High School college and career ready. We have an outstanding AVID and Advanced Placement program. This year we have introduced six new classes: Advanced Placement Spanish, Culinary Arts, Computer Science and Programming, Introduction to Construction, Journalism, and La Promesa Future Educators class. We also have a new College and Career Center that is staffed by Ms. Carla Suber,

Even though we have an open campus, our students are actively involved in ASB, and the numerous clubs on campus. This year we have three new clubs on campus, Interact, "S" club, and our Engineering club. The Interact and "S" clubs are service clubs that are generously supported by our local Rotary and Soroptimist organizations.

Our staff welcomes all parents to be involved in their child's education here at Calistoga High School. Therefore, if you are looking for ways to get involved, volunteer, or be more active on our campus, please contact Ms. Maria Urzua via email,, or by phone, 707-942-6278.

Our staff firmly believes that every student can be successful and meet our school's high expectations.

I'm honored to serve our students, staff and community, and I look forward to getting to know everyone who is involved in continuing the legacy of success here at Calistoga High School.

Craig Wycoff
Calistoga Junior/Senior High School and Palisades High School Principal
