Policies and Procedure

The Wallis Annenberg High School (WAHS)—made possible by a generous $10 million gift from Wallis Annenberg and the Annenberg Foundation—opened in 2003. WAHS is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) through June 2014.  Today, WAHS serves 9th-12th grade students, boasts a 97% graduation rate, 96.10% attendance rate and an Academic Performance Index (API) of 750. Plus,  100% of our 2013 graduates are scheduled to attend college—and the number of seniors attending a four-year college or university has increased to 70%!

Each of our high school students is encouraged to achieve personal success, a strong sense of self and community, along with a deep appreciation for the art of learning. These accomplishments are achieved in an environment designed to enable all students to accelerate their progress and achieve at high levels through powerful learning experiences. Each student is challenged with a strong focus on becoming mentally and academically prepared to enter—and succeed—in the college of their choice.

Ultimately, our graduates are well prepared to become independent critical thinkers and decision-makers who recognize that learning is a lifelong process. We are so proud of our WAHS graduates! Many go on to attend top-tier schools, including:
