Our vision is to unleash the potential of every graduate from Walla Walla Public Schools by offering a comprehensive High School and Beyond Plan. This transformative plan will open doors to a multitude of career and educational paths, empowering students to explore their passions, interests, and talents.

Developing Washington's Most Sought-After Graduates
High School & Beyond Plan
CRAFTING A HIGH SCHOOL AND BEYOND PLAN
The HSBP is a meaningful, individualized plan that is grounded in students’ interests, strengths, and hopes for their future. Through deeper, structured conversations with caring adults and real world experiences, students stay engaged, on-track toward graduation, and are prepared for success after high school
High School & Beyond Plans are reviewed at least annually by school staff and parents/guardians to assess student progress; refine the plan, including course registration; and review current plans for the student’s post-high school. This is also the opportunity to assess the student’s progress towards the successful completion of high school graduation requirements.
Walla Walla Public Schools High utilizes the online platform, SchooLinks, where students explore their interests, college and career pathways, and update their future goals and course planning. Students in grades 8-12 and their family can access SchooLinks any time. Learn more about SchooLinks
