Advanced PlacementThe Advanced Placement Program at WUHS allows students to take college level courses that may give them college credit while they are still in high school. As noted by the College Board’s research notes, students that take Advanced Placement courses and exams are much more likely than their peers to complete a bachelor’s degree in four years or less. 

In May of 2017, Woodstock Union High School students took 15 Advanced Placement exams with 118 students taking 135 exams!  In 2017, 76% of our AP students earned a score of 3, 4, or 5 on their exams.  We had 123 AP Scholars, including 2 with National AP Scholar recognition. 

We are happy to announce that we are offering 13 Advanced Placement courses during the 2017-2018 school year as well as 5 additional classes through the Virtual High School Collaborative.  We expect to administer over 160 exams in 18 different content areas in May 2018.

Each election year for the last 14 years, our 8th graders have invited local, state, and national candidatesfor office running in the November elections to attend this informal meet-and-greet with the 8th grade class.  The event is very well attended, and all 8th grade students have the opportunity to spend time in the library in small groups to introduce themselves, ask questions, and engage in discussion with the candidates about current events and issues facing American citizens and Vermonters in particular.  Click on the image to view the entire gallery.

Ninth grade Integrated Environmental Science students continue their participation in the Twin States Mercury Monitoring Project,  joint research project funded by the National Park Foundation and supported by Dartmouth College, the Schoodic Education and Research Center, and Saint Gaudens and Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Parks. Students will become stewards of the environment by developing testable hypotheses about how mercury moves through the environment with a focus on dragonflies. Students traveled to the "Pogue", a 20 acre pond within the MBR National Historic Park, to collect water samples and macro-invertebrates such as dragonfly nymphs.  By the way, check out Amanda Giracca's terrific article in Orion Magazine titled "Into the Field: Why science education needs to leave the classroom.

Our new "first Year" students spent the day on the first day of school participating in our annual  orientation program.  Students participated in goal-setting and team-building activities throughout the day in order to kick off the year and become more familiar with teachers and classmates.   The activities were beautifully facilitated by Phil and Liz from High Five Adventures and we had a blast!  We welcome the class of 2020 and wish them a fantastic year!
