Due to the upcoming ISTEP test, WCHS will be modifying its schedule to meet the needs of students during the testing window.

ISTEP testing begins the week of Feb. 26 and goes until March 9. Students will test with their classroom teachers. This means testing in math, English and biology will occur during the related class period.  To accommodate the length of the tests, the high school will run a double block schedule the first week of ISTEP testing.

During the week of Feb. 26, WCHS students will begin testing in English on Monday.  

February 27 will be an even block day with no late arrival. Students will have enrichment, then periods 2, 4 and 6 for 90 minutes each.  February 28, will be an odd period block, Thursday will be normal late arrival then even period block schedule. March 2 will be an odd period block.

On Feb. 27, students will report to Enrichment at 7:40 a.m., then begin English section 2 testing and attend classes according to a block schedule for periods 2, 4 and 6. 

The following week, WCHS will begin testing for the math section of ISTEP. On Monday and Tuesday, the schedule will follow a regular format for periods 1-7 with math sections one and two. Biology section one testing will be March 7 and 8, normal block schedule on these days.

Testing will take place for juniors retaking the ISTEP and sophomores completing the English and math testing requirements. Students will test with their math or English teacher during their class periods. Biology testing will take place for all freshman and sophomores currently taking biology.

Student attendance is important during ISTEP testing. Please ensure students bring a fully charged iPad for testing every day. Proper sleep and nutrition are vital for student success on these required assessments for graduation. From Feb. 26 through March 2, the cafeteria will also have free breakfast for students. 


We are celebrating an improvement of ECA score results at the high school this spring. We also want to mention the results of some outstanding students.

The students in these pictures were the top scoring students in our building this last May. Great work and we are all very proud of you at WCHS!!!!

These are the top scorers in the ECA Algebra I test.

These are the top scoring students for the ECA Biology I test. Lydia DeBoest and Bradley Nethercutt got a maximum score!!

These students were the top scoring students on the ECA English 10 test. Paul Motter got a maximum score!!

The End-of-Course (ECA) results for Algebra I, Biology I and English 10 are now available. Parents will receive a copy of the ECA results by by July 28. We are waiting on the Department of Education to mail the reports and parent access letters to the school.

Parents have the ability to access scores and images of the student responses from the tests to see if a re-score on any item is possible. ONLY parents can see these images and make this request. The school does not have the access to make a re-score request. However, if you need assistance we would gladly help you with processing a re-score request.

Re-scores are an option if the parent or the student feel like one of the written response answers should receive more credit than was actually awarded. If you have questions, your guidance counselor can assist you with this decision or direct you to where you can get help with this decision. Generally, it is more difficult for students to get points back for the Algebra I ECA than for the English 10 ECA. If you child is within ten (10) points of the passing score, it may be a good idea to consider a re-score on one or more items from the ECA.

The re-score request window is July 28-August 15, 2014. Updates from a re-score will be updated for the school by August 29, 2014. If there is no change from the re-score request, no new printed reports will be sent from the Department of Education.

Should you have any questions about your child's ECA scores or status, please contact your child's guidance counselor or grade level administrator.
