Welcome from Principal Kellie Mowll - Grades 9-12
Greetings and welcome to WISH Academy High School. On behalf of the faculty, staff, and scholars, we are excited that you have shown an interest in our website and decided to learn more about our academic programs, excellent staff, and enthusiastic scholars.
An education at WISH Academy focuses on each learner's potential. We strive to create meaningful and engaging learning experiences in an environment based on caring and belonging. With a collaborative team of educators, we are committed to inclusiveness, the development of social and ethical skills, and the notion that positive attitudes are created when scholars of various strengths, needs, beliefs, and backgrounds learn together.
Our school community is dedicated to providing our scholars with a well-rounded educational experience. In addition to core curriculum standards, we believe it is critical that graduates are exposed to the benefits and collaborative innovations of project-based learning, leadership opportunities, and technologies that will prepare our scholars not only for college entry, but success and the college completion of a four-year program.
Students will have the opportunity to engage in pathway courses aligned to their interests including the PLTW Engineering and BioMedical coursework, Visual and Performing Arts classes, and the Liberal Arts/Civics pathway courses. This approach scaffolds student learning through structured activities and projects that empower scholars to become independent in the classroom and build skill sets focused on problem-solving. As they continue, internships and work experience will prepare them to use this curriculum to prepare for college and universities.
We hope you will visit us and see that we are a school committed to young adults and education. This is a vibrant and engaging community of teachers and learners. To our parents, we believe that your involvement is an essential component to the academic success of your child. I also encourage you to visit our website often, meet with the faculty and staff, and contact us with any questions you might have. Again, welcome to WISH Academy High School, we look forward to working with you.
