Welcome to Washtenaw International High School!
Washtenaw International High School is a free, public, consortium high school for students in participating Washtenaw County school districts. It will open in the Fall of 2011 to its first group of ninth grade students.
The school will provide a challenging, student-centered, inquiry-based sequence of courses with an emphasis on international understanding, cultural identity and the taking of multiple perspectives. It will be a program that emphasizes rigorous academic standards in disciplinary and interdisciplinary knowledge.
The school has been designed to meet all International Baccalaureate requirements for teacher training, course design and assessment frameworks. We will begin the process of authorization for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program in the spring of 2011.
The school will be located in the newly renovated East Middle School at 510 Emerick Street, Ypsilanti, MI, 48198. It is just minutes from the Huron Street exit on I-94.
The following Washtenaw County school districts have joined the consortium:
