  • Dr. Kathy LudwigGreetings West Linn-Wilsonville School Community -

    Welcome to the West Linn-Wilsonville School District! This is an exceptional place of teaching, learning and community support. Between our incredible students, dedicated staff, supportive School Board and wonderful community, I can’t imagine a better place in which to learn and lead.

    What makes this district so special is that while we draw upon students, families and patrons from two cities, we are ONE community, made stronger by our mission of creating learning communities for the greatest thinkers and most thoughtful people for the world.  We have compelling District Goals, that drive strategies and actions for improving how we teach, learn and lead in cultures that are inclusive, courses that are academically rigorous and results that generate equitable outcomes for each child. 

    This year, our West Linn-Wilsonville theme is “Leading Together”, and I invite members across our community to engage and participate in ways that strengthen our district mission and shine a light on the endeavors of our amazing students.

    To a great year!
    Kathy Ludwig, Superintendent

  • WLWV High School Students Wow at International ISEF Competition

    Posted by West Linn-Wilsonville on 5/22/2018 12:45:00 PM

    West Linn-Wilsonville high school students traveled to Pittsburgh May 13-18 for the Intel ISEF competition.

    The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair is the biggest event of the year for up-and-coming scientists. It’s a showcase of brilliant young minds, featuring work that is both innovative and groundbreaking in nature, typically impacting society and life on earth for the better.

    To get invited to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, your work truly has to be the best of the best. That’s certainly true for the nine West Linn-Wilsonville students who traveled to Pittsburgh on May 13-18 to meet like-minded peers and share their work with the greater science community.

    Of the nine students who attended the prestigious competition, two earned awards for projects, and everyone who made the trip gained valuable experience in the process.  

    West Linn High School junior Pooja Jain, Wilsonville High School junior Nathan Tidball, WLHS junior Rishma Mukherjee, WLHS junior Marlee Feltham, Wilsonville High juniors Michelle Stevens and Hannah Budroe all participated as finalists for the May 13-18 competition, while WLHS freshman Hayden Wierman, WLHS sophomore Katarina Pejcinovic, and WLHS freshman Neel Jain traveled with the group of young scientists as observers.

    Of note, WLHS’s Pooja Jain earned a First Place Agni Award, won a full tuition scholarship worth $250,000 to Drexel University, and received an Honorable Mention award from the International Council on Systems Engineering for her project. Wilsonville High School’s Nathan Tidball, meanwhile, placed at the international competition for the second-straight year, winning a Third Place Award in the Environmental Engineering category.

    The six finalists and nine young scientists worked on unique projects over the course of the summer and school year before competing in district and state science fair competitions. Congratulations to all of our scientists!

  • WLHS's Glenn Krake Named OJEA Oregon Journalism Teacher of the Year

    Posted by West Linn-Wilsonville on 5/17/2018 3:45:00 PM

    WLHS Teacher Glenn Krake was recently named the OJEA Oregon Journalism Teacher of the Year. The Oregon Journalism Education Association and Northwest Scholastic Press announced that West Linn High School Teacher Glenn Krake has been named the Journalism Teacher of the Year for the State of Oregon.

    Mr. Krake joins West Linn High School Senior Emily Martin, who was named the NSP Oregon Journalism Education Association Student Journalist of the Year earlier this spring. The two received awards presented by OJEA’s Bill Flechtner on Thursday, May 17 in front of staff and students.

    “Glenn is an exemplary media adviser and we are pleased to recognize him for the quality of work he continues to do with his students,” Flechtner said.

    Mr. Krake leads the WLHS journalism program, which includes the award-winning Yearbook, Amplifier Newspaper, and WLHS Now multimedia site in addition to broadcast journalism classes. The Journalism Program has flourished under Krake’s watch in recent years, and is set to undergo more exciting changes thanks to additional funding the school secured in the form of a Career Technical Education Grant. That funding will provide additional equipment and learning spaces for WLHS students for years to come.

  • WLWV Shines in U.S. News and World Report High School Rankings

    Posted by West Linn-Wilsonville on 5/16/2018 11:30:00 AM

    West Linn High School finished fifth and Wilsonville High School seventh in the US News and World Report's latest rankings. The West Linn-Wilsonville School District was well represented once again when the U.S. News and World Report findings were released earlier this week.

    Wilsonville High School was ranked No. 7 and West Linn High School was ranked No. 5 in all of Oregon. The two high schools came in behind only School of Science and Technology, Corbett School, International School of Beaverton, and No. 1-ranked Woodburn Academy of Art, Science and Technology. WLWV’s Arts and Technology High School also showed a jump in its ranking, showing solid growth throughout the district.

    Schools were judged based on students performed relative to studens in their state on state proficiency tests, whether historically underserved students performed at or better than the state average, graduation rates, and how ready students were for college upon graduation.

    Way to go staff and students!
