Elective Courses

Dual/College Credit Course offerings

Dual credit courses offer students an opportunity to simultaneously earn high school and college credit. Wallowa accomplishes this by partnering with colleges who support our teachers with curriculum, syllabi, as well as the scope and sequence of the course. Virtual course offerings are available, provided by IMESD teachers.  These are rigorous courses that have additional requirements due to their dual credit structure. Depending on the course, dual credit may or may not have fees attached. If there is a cost, it is usually at a significantly reduced rate and Wallowa School District strives to cover any tuition-related student balances.

WHS In-Person Courses
