Accreditation Survey 2/12/2015

Every five to six years, high school in Nevada conduct a self study process designed to gather data used in the accreditation process. WPHS is accredited through Northwest Accreditation of Secondary Schools and the AdvancEd organizations. Through the school improvement process, the school has been recognized through the years as


·         High achieving (2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011)

·         Exemplary (2007)

·         Nevada model school (State Mega Conference 2005 and 2013)

·         National model school (2005, 2012)

·         Recipients of Jobs for America’s Graduates funds (2014, 2015)


Many of the improvements the school has made have come through the collection of data and analysis of best practices research. These include initiatives such as Rigor and Relevance, Balanced Assessment, Standards Based Grading, adopting the Professional Learning Communities model, and continued, job-embedded professional development. Other improvements, such as Freshman and Senior Achievement, Friday School, Tutoring, and Advanced Placement courses, have come directly from discussions with parents and teachers.
