All Lake Washington School District students have the right to public education. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Plyler vs. Doe (457 U.S. 202 (1982)) that undocumented children and young adults have the same right to attend public primary and secondary schools as do U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Lake Washington does not ask for or collect immigration status information.
High School Guide
The LWSD High School Guide provides information that will help high school students and their families understand what is required to earn a Lake Washington high school diploma. This guide is an important start to the process: your high school's course catalog will provide more information. Your high school counselor will be an important partner and will be able to answer questions you may have after reviewing this guide.
Please come back as you progress through high school. Your interests and plans may change. And some items, like the performance-based graduation requirements, may become more important to you in later grades.
