The Wahtonka Community School is located at the Wahtonka Campus, 3601 West 10th Street in The Dalles, with classes starting July 7th, 2014.  The school will operate year round - July through June - Monday through Thursday from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm.  For the 2016-2017 school year, enrollment is limited to 55 students.  The Wahtonka Community School will have a closed campus.


Student learning focuses on hands-on, project based skills.  Students will work with members of our community creating and participating in service projects where students will learn their academic skills by helping others.  Much of the student's time will be spent helping operate the school farm, running the school's farmer's market, conducting outdoor environmental studies, and interacting with local community business leaders and community members outside of school.  Students will be expected to attend school every day, work hard and interact with our community in a positive manner.
