"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.

At WHS, we want our students to be goal oriented, willing to take risks and believe in themselves. College can include a four year university, community college, a trade school, internships, certifications, etc. We want all students to graduate from WHS on time with the tools and skills necessary to persevere in their pursuit of a successful life!

Brighten the Light!

This year, our theme is "Brighten the Light!" We believe that all students have a light and if we support each other we can all learn to shine brightly! Relationships and learning go hand in hand. We want all students to know, as soon as they walk through our door, they belong and are a valued member of our learning community.

At this year's Back-to-School night, we put together Parent Information Presentation packed with information about WHS curriculum, college and career readiness, the schedule and creative opportunities, testing, Mule Success, and resources for student success.

We hope students feel comfortable enough to be themselves, are willing to explore a variety of opportunities to ensure they find their passion and that they leave WHS with a positive plan for their future. Having a growth mind set and striving to continually improve takes a willingness to try.

We believe “Failure is success in progress!” We want our students to know Wahkiakum High School is a safe place to take a risk; to learn to shine brightly. Staff and students are here to support and care about each other through this journey called “high school”. We strive to create a positive culture, one that values individuals, their talents, dreams and goals.Go Mules!
