High Schools

Wausau East High School and Wausau West High School

The Wausau School District’s comprehensive high schools create numerous opportunities for our ninth through twelfth grade students to achieve success. Both Wausau East and Wausau West High Schools offer comprehensive instructional programs that meet the diverse educational needs of young adults. Offering the prestigious International Baccalaureate program at Wausau East High School and an outstanding array of Advanced Placement courses at Wausau West High School, the District challenges students to pursue academic excellence.

Course offerings prepare students for the future, whether they pursue vocational training, attend a technical college or university, join the military, or move into the world of work. Our students have the opportunity to build their own educational plans through the use of individual learning plans. These individual learning plans help our students and parents select appropriate courses to support the exploration of various career opportunities. Relevant and rigorous programs of study such as Project Lead the Way (a pre-engineering academy program) and Health Careers (a medical academy program) give students a tremendous advantage in pursuing their collegiate level education in these in-demand career fields.

Students at both high schools have access to comprehensive career centers that help them explore and determine their path to the future. Access to a full range of technologies, apprenticeships, and community business partnerships keeps our high school program a dynamic learning environment. A wide choice of athletic and extra-curricular offerings provides our students an arena in which they can build upon the values of teamwork, self-esteem, and perseverance.
