Students will have the chance to make up courses they have previously failed. Credits earned will be Pass/Fail and will not remove the previous F.

There will be a district teacher helping students navigate online courses with recorded video instruction. Students will be able to work both at school with the teacher as well as at home. The cost for retrieval credits is $75 per student, with as many courses as they can complete available.There are  need based scholarships available see attached form.  Vashon Island High School office will be open from 7:00 AM unitl 3:00 PM until June 24th, to pay any fees.

2014-15 Course Description

VHS named 2013 Washington Achievement Award Winner

Vashon High School has been recognized as being in the top 5% of all comprehensive high schools in the state for 2013, as well as demonstrating 'High Progress' for serving low income students over a 3 year period. This award belongs to all of us! We are one of 26 high schools to receive the 'Overall Excellence' award across the state and one of only 6 to have both Overall Excellence and High Progress, an important combination.

Our overall academic achievement, low income achievement, improvement and achievement vs peers were compared over two years using the Washington Achievement Index. We additionally had to have a narrow 'achievement gap' to qualify, meaning the gap between our at risk students and high achieving students could not be too big. Our student's success not only reflects the quality of practice at VHS, but also at McM and CES as we are simply the last destination for our learners. 

Congratulations to our students, parents, and school staff for this wonderful accomplishment!
