Who We Are
Wenatchee School District is made of one early childhood learning center and inclusionary preschool, seven elementary schools, three middle schools, one comprehensive high school, one alternative high school, a K-8 alternative parent partnership school, an internet academy, and a technical skills center.
We are 1,100 exceptional staff who take pride in serving the more than 6,800 students who attend WSD schools.
Our students are 53 percent Latino, 43 percent white, 1 percent Asian, and 3 percent from other or multiple racial backgrounds. Fifty-five percent of students receive free-and-reduced lunches, and more than 500 are currently experiencing homelessness. Sixteen percent are from the migrant community. Twenty-five percent are transitional bilingual. Together, our students, teachers, staff, and leadership represent the diversity and richness of Wenatchee, as well as the challenges facing our community. Together, our students, teachers, staff, and leadership represent the diversity and richness of Wenatchee.
Students come to our schools with different lived experiences, starting points, and needs. We believe every student has limitless potential and deserves an education that will help them reach their academic and career goals—whatever they may be. That’s why we’re working hard to make WSD a place every student knows they belong and has what they need to succeed.
A New Strategic Plan
In 2021, WSD adopted a new strategic plan, incorporating feedback from meetings with 2,000 community stakeholders, 75 listening sessions with teachers and families, and 63 community and school events. A strategic planning team of parents, students, community members, and district staff also guided and informed the plan’s development. Cornerstones of the plan are our promise and the “Big 6” student outcomes—academic and social-emotional learning goals—along with action steps to achieve them.
Wenatchee, North Central Washington’s regional hub, is a city of 34,000 located on the Columbia River east of the Cascade Mountains. It has a diversified economy with export-oriented agriculture, which gave its Apple Capital of the World name, hydropower, health and other knowledge services, government, outdoor recreation, and strong traditions of arts and community philanthropy.
