Willamette High School
It was difficult to tell who was more excited, current Bethel 8th graders or their parents.
At Willamette High School’s 8th Grade Parent Night they learned all about the high quality Career Technical Education programs, International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement classes, electives, clubs and other opportunities waiting for them at Wil-Hi.
Hundreds of parents and students visited with teachers, talked with advisors, toured the school, and narrowed their choices for freshman year.
Most students had already signed-up for their preferred classes, but they had a chance to make changes to their wish lists after learning more about their many exciting options as 9th graders.
Bethel 8th graders are already making plans for moving on to high school.
All the District’s 8th graders have been touring Willamette High School this week, guided around campus by current WHS Leadership students.
It’s been an eye-opening experience for the students who are the big kids back at their schools. They walked the campus, some sat in on classes, and learned about the multitude of course offerings that await them and how to sign-up for classes now.
Parents of 8th graders get their own introduction to Willamette on March 21st at 8th Grade Parent Night. It will be an opportunity to learn about the International Baccalaureate program, and the many clubs, activities, sports, and electives at Wil-Hi.
It’s all making the transition to high school much more real for everyone.
