Wahkiakum High School serves 9th through 12th grade students in Wahkiakum County and is located on a bluff in Cathlamet, Washington, overlooking the Lower Columbia River.
Wahkiakum High School is proud to be an accredited high school, serving about 130-150 students each year. To learn more about the accreditation process for WHS, visit our page on www.advanc-ed.org.

Make a Difference!
This year, our theme is "make a difference." Students are invited to reflect on how they can "make a difference" maybe that is through dedication to school work, kindness in the hall, reaching out to those in need, or smiling and simply being present every day.
As a staff, our goal is to create a college-going culture where students will leave Wahkiakum High School with the tools and skills necessary to persevere in their pursuit for college or career success.
