"Today's decisions create tomorrow's successes!"
Wahkiakum High School serves about 130-150 9th-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. 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.
Being Different, Belonging Together!
This year, our theme is "Being Different, Belonging Together." With teachers and students willing to support each other and opportunities such as Mule Success CORE/FLEX 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 of college or career success.
To meet this goal, the WHS faculty receives support from the UW GEAR UP Educator Development Initiative (EDI). With these GEAR UP tools and resources, WHS faculty have introduced Mule Success Time, added Advanced Placement classes, and created a partnership with Lower Columbia College to expose students to early college placement testing.
We are proud of how quickly these programs have made a significant positive impact on WHS students' academic progress. So proud, that WHS teachers presented our story at the 2015 UW GEAR UP EDI Summer Institute showing other teachers how our success can be replicated at other similar schools across the state. Yes, college CAN be a realistic expectation for most WHS students. GO MULES!
