Rising 9th Grader Information

Welcome Rising 9th Graders!

This year, WGHS is releasing Rising Freshman Orientation materials on the WGHS website to coincide with the pre-registration process. These materials will address the most frequently asked questions about the transition from middle to high-school, including an overview of the block schedule, graduation requirements, as well as tips for high-school success. In addition, we will provide information detailing many of the Pathways and available electives at WGHS. This will serve as an introduction, which will be built upon next fall during student advisement sessions and grade level meetings.

It is our hope that these programs and materials will help you in planning for high school and will lead toward your student’s academic success in his/her freshman year. We hope that the information we are providing will help you to be more knowledgeable about classes and the high school format, as well as how your student can be successful as a high school student. We look forward to working with your Walnut Grove grade student and to seeing you soon at The Grove.

Welcome to Walnut Grove from Mr. Allen, our principal

Elective and Pathways

Elective / Pathway areas provide opportunities for students to explore areas of interest in depth beyond taking a single class in an elective area. More in depth exploration in an area of interest can help students make more informed decisions as to future plans and goals for life after high-school, giving them a better sense of direction. Students can complete most Pathways with three classes in the same area of interest. Students are welcomed and encouraged to explore different areas of interest, and also encouraged to complete one or more Pathways in areas of interest to the student.

The elective pathways offered at WGHS are linked to more information below:
