Walla Walla High School’s academic year is divided into two semesters with official grades reported in January and in June. 


Walla Walla High School offers a comprehensive curriculum.  Program options range from special education and ELL services to Honors and AP courses. There are also half-day programs available through the local Skills Center, where students can receive certifications. Students may also begin earning high school credit in middle school through an accelerated program in mathematics and Spanish. WWHS offers 9 Honors courses and 17 AP courses.

Students also have the option of taking college courses through the following programs:

Running Start: A state legislated program where qualified juniors and seniors can earn high school and college credit simultaneously through community college classes. All credits appear on the high school transcript.

Enrichment Programs: Programs at Whitman College and Walla Walla University where students can earn college credit on a tuition-free basis. Credits do not appear on the high school transcript.


One student was designated as National Merit Semi Finalist, and 5 students were designated as National Merit Commended Students last year. Over the years, WWHS has had many National Merit Commended Students and Finalists.


The class of 2022 was composed of 429 seniors. Approximately 30% of these students entered a four-year institution and 33% entered a two-year institution.
