Vision and Mission

Our Vision:

Together, entrusted with and accountable for the success of each student.

Our Mission:

Creating a supportive and welcoming environment for student success, our schools and community will collaborate to ensure all students become self- reliant, well-rounded, and productive citizens through a broad range of opportunities.

  • Each student will develop a strong academic foundation that includes the arts, health, technology, and second language skills.
  • Each student will develop the ability to use time effectively, think critically, work cooperatively, and utilize a variety of skills to solve real world problems.
  • Each student will develop civic and cultural understanding, an appreciation of diversity, and an ability to engage in civil discourse within a democratic society.
  • Each student will develop an understanding of life-long fitness and the skills needed to make healthy choices.
  • Each student will develop effective written and verbal communication skills, including public speaking and communicating to a variety of audiences, and demonstrate positive and appropriate social interaction.
  • Each student will leave high school ready to assume adult responsibilities, manage resources, successfully apply for opportunities, live independently, collaborate as a member of a team, and commit to hard work.

We asked community members, parents, students, and staff what experiences and opportunities they believed students should have in school to be successful in life. These three major themes emerged.

  • A wide variety of co-curricular and extra curricular activities:
    Each student will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities including athletics, performing arts, and high interest clubs.
  • Partnering with the community for the students’ futures:
    Washougal School District will partner with community, businesses, and agencies to introduce students to a broad range of occupations and expertise and to get the feedback needed to keep instruction relevant. Students will have opportunities to apply what they have learned in class to real work experiences and contribute to community needs.
  • Extending learning within and beyond the classroom
    Each student will have learning experiences including field trips to enrich learning in and beyond the classroom. Students will actively engage in projects including scientific inquiry, environmental studies, technology, governmental systems and leadership.
We asked community members, parents, students, and staff what aspects of the district culture should remain the same, and what aspects needed focus.
