Welcome to Waukee High School! I invite you to explore our website as it will provide you with a glimpse of the many great opportunities available for our students.

Our dedicated staff works closely with all students to ensure each student has a positive and personalized experience at Waukee High School (WHS). We offer a wide selection of courses including unique special interest, Advanced Placement (AP), and concurrently enrolled classes. Click here to view our academic achievements.

Our daily schedule is structured around a 4 X 4 block schedule, where each student is enrolled in four classes daily that are ninety minutes in length. In addition to academics, our students excel in the arts, activities, and athletics. Students are encouraged get involved and take advantage of the many opportunities offered.

During the 2013-14 school year, Waukee High School will serve approximately 1,475 students in grades 10-12. WHS is a part of the fastest growing school district in Iowa and is located on the western edge of the Des Moines metropolitan area. Our high school facility is a modern, state of the art facility that first opened its doors to students in the fall of 1997. Since 1997, our high school has expanded in 2000, 2003, 2007, and we opened the final addition to WHS in 2012 with an additional 24 classrooms (including three new computer labs, a new media center, and three new science rooms), renovated classrooms, Waukee Fieldhouse, and additional locker rooms.

I look forward to another exciting and rewarding year. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call, email, or stop by to visit with us. We are pleased to be at your service.

Mr. Kirk J. Johnson, Principal
