Welcome, Class of 2023 and Parents,
We are excited to welcome you to Woodland Park High School! The next four years will be a thrilling time in life as you discover your talents, explore your interests, develop habits for your success, and create friendships that will last your lifetime. Panthers, like you, who have walked these same halls went on to become National Merit Scholars, receive full-ride scholarships to college, become award-winning artists and musicians, and have set athletic records. Students who have bravely challenged themselves have grown and flourished at whatever they continue to choose to do in life. We challenge you to get involved and participate in all the high school has to offer. Ask yourself the question, what high school experience will I create for myself? Each of you has a unique gift to bring to our community of learners, and we are thrilled to have you join us.
WPHS believes in building a Real Learning experience for your Real Lives. Demonstrations of learning are critical and are what is required to achieve your goals. To this end, we are intensifying your experience for self-directed learning, increasing student choice, deepening critical thinking skills, creating time for real-world experiences for learning, and building transferable skills necessary for success in and after high school. We are excited about the many ways our students interact with their learning and how we build intentional experiences for our Panthers. Woodland Park High School is committed to developing sixteen Habits of Success in each student. These successful habits only become habits when we practice them or develop them intentionally time after time after time. Our students know the habits when they see them, and when they experience them daily both in school and at home.
In order to set students up for success with the transition, we have a few events to help both parents and students feel informed and confident.
Panther Orientation- Becoming Part of the Pride
Details: Entering high school can be an intimidating experience for students. Our goal is to provide students with experiences that familiarize them with the high school setting, expectations, and the culture so that each student has a sense of belonging when he or she enters the high school on the first day of the 2019-20 school year. Students will tour the building and interact with administration, staff, and current students in a fun, interactive setting that develops community through the Habits of Success.
