GEAR UP for Student Success and Advisories

As a GEAR UP for Student Success School, Wahkiakum High School was given the use of a program called Career Cruising. This online program allows students to take interest and skills surveys and matches them up with possible career paths. The students can then research these occupations and discover schools in the region that will prepare them for these jobs. The program will also provide them with a suggested high school course of study to get them ready for college or post high school education.

This program dovetails beautifully with our current portfolio project and will replace the Kuder skills survey in the senior project. The students who have taken this survey have really liked it. All of the students will have an opportunity to access Career Cruising during scheduled classes or monthly advisory.

In addition, as the GearUp students get ready for college this program offers a GearUp website with tons of resources for transitioning students to college (such as information on campus visits, preparing for the college admission process, and navigating financial aid), and scholarship offerings.

WSD's Highly Capable Program

The WSD is committed to identifying and providing for the unique intellectual, social, and emotional needs of highly capable students in grades K-12 to prepare them for college and career readiness. Our purpose is to provide appropriate educational programs and services through instructional, curricular, and administrative modifications to create educational opportunities for highly capable students which will maximize their individual potential.

Traffic Safety / Driver's Ed

The Traffic Safety Class lasts 9 weeks and is scheduled at 7:00 - 8:00 am each day school is in session. Students are also expected to drive with the instructor after school, for at least a couple of days a week.

Students must be at least 15 years old to sign up for the class. The DMV will issue driving permits to students starting at age 15, as long as they are enrolled in a Traffic Safety class. The instructor issues a waiver to students in this class, so they do not have to take the written test to get the driving permit.

Wahkiakum High School tries to offer the class 3 times a year, based upon reaching 10 paid students in a timely manner that is within the standard school year (September - June). For the Spring session, if 10 paid students are not signed up by April 1st, then the Traffic Safety class is postponed until September.

For more information about the current cost for the class ($300 during the 2014/2015 school year, payable in 2 installments) or any other questions you may have, please contact the High School Office.
