We encourage all our students to strive for academic excellence that reflects critical thinking and creativity.

We demonstrate our commitment in many ways, including the following:

  • providing support and counsel to all our student populations in high-tech, high- rigor courses.
  • having school-wide advisory programs to form trusting and caring relationships for each student.
  • committment to continued improvement through professional staff development and training for our teachers.
  • involving parents and students in the decision-making process through our student council, school leadership team, and parent advisory boards.

Our hours are 8:15 AM to 3:15 PM for students and 8 AM to 4:00 PM for teachers.

Our Mission Statement:
Through intercultural understanding and respect, WHS’s mission is to ensure students’ academic and social growth in an environment that fosters active student involvement while nurturing compassionate life- long learners and global citizens. Education at Washburn takes place within integrated/inclusive classrooms where instruction focuses on raising the achievement of all students thereby narrowing the gaps between the highest and the lowest performing students and eliminating the racial predictability and disproportionality of which student groups occupy the highest and lowest achievement categories.
