High School

The goal of our High School program is to give our students the tools they need to become independent adults who are able to access information and make good decisions. In addition to instruction in factual information relating to each subject area, students are encouraged to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills that will enable them to live productively after graduation whether they are moving on to college or the workforce.

WPSD recognizes the importance of the transition from high school to post-secondary education, training or work. Parents, students and the local education agency are all required to work together in the planning of transitional activities for our students. In addition to coursework, students may elect to complete On-the-Job-Training courses, job shadowing and be involved in the establishment of school-based businesses. The administration of interest inventories, college testing and post-secondary counseling are provided to meet the needs of all students. Transition portfolios are developed as students move through their high school years.

The High School includes students in grades 9-12. Satisfactory performance leads to a high school diploma. To receive a diploma, a student must complete IEP goals and objectives as mandated by the Pennsylvania State Special Education Regulations and Standards.
