"Today's decisions create tomorrow's successes!"

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.

Read more about the wide variety of college-prep, vocational, individualized, and creative learning opportunities offered to WHS students by our outstanding faculty in this Wahkiakum Eagle article dated January 22, 2015.

Knowledge is Power!

This year, our theme is "knowledge is power." With teachers and students willing to support each other and opportunities such as Mule Success Time and after school tutoring, along with individual effort, determination and perseverance, success in learning is possible.

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.
