Wapato High School Excited About a New Building and Test Scores


Wapato staffers and students are celebrating the rapid progress of their brand new high school.

Principal Eric Diener tells KNDO News that the remodeled gym will be ready by October and teachers and students can start moving into dozens of classrooms early next year.

But the building is only about 50 percent complete and construction will continue until the fall of next year.

A new building is not the only reason for good cheer in the Wapato School District. The scores are back for the State High School Proficiency Exam and Wapato High School can do a little bragging.

Staff members tell KNDO that 10th graders showed exceptional improvement with double-digit gains in three of the four areas.

Principal Diener said it is nice to see the hard work of the students and teachers pay off and it can only help the success of their school district.

“These are all state requirements for graduation and so where it helps the most, increasing the graduation rates, validating what we are doing as a staff and as a district.”

The principal said they still have a long way to go and the staff will consistently monitor student achievement data to fine tune their instruction.
