Affinity Groups for Students of Color
Welcome to West Linn High School! Thank you for clicking up this link about affinity groups at WLHS. We are a diverse community with many different groups and clubs to help you find your community. Affinity groups for students of color are working to create community and understanding within our large high school. Our students come from a myriad of cultural backgrounds and experiences; whether you’ve grown up in West Linn or recently immigrated, whether you identify as bi-racial or not, if you identify as a student of color, we invite you to join one or more of our affinity groups affirming and encouraging your identity.
