May 24, 2016On behalf of the students of District 200, local business leaders are invited to attend an informational meeting regarding a new and innovative program that we are embarking on for next year - INCubatoredu. This program provides students with an authentic entrepreneurship experience in which the students create and fully develop their own product or service. Real entrepreneurs and business experts serve as volunteer coaches and mentors, guiding student teams through the Lean Startup processes of developing hypotheses about a business concept, testing those hypotheses, adapting, and furthering iteration.
May 24, 2016District 200 offices are currently operating on a four day work week through August 5th. Buildings are open from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and closed on Fridays. Employees work ten hours each day to accommodate the change.
April 22, 2016Woodstock High School was recognized by two prestigious nationwide organizations for our academic success. U.S. News and World Report recognized Woodstock High School in their 2016 Best High Schools rankings. We were ranked as one of the top 100 high schools in the state, earning our second consecutive Silver Award that puts us within the top 10% of all high schools nationally. The Washington Post included WHS in the list of America's Most Challenging High Schools, making this our third consecutive year of earning this award.
March 17, 2016WHS administration and staff are concerned not only with the academic success of our students, but also with the social-emotional wellbeing of our students. In an effort to be as proactive as possible, we are announcing a new service available to WHS students called Text-a-Tip. Text-a-Tip (http://www.leadingefforts.org/text-a-tip/) is a text-communication app that is completely anonymous, operating 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. The system provides text-message service to a dedicated number, allowing the caller to receive an immediate response from a licensed mental health professional in complete anonymity.
