Hello Everyone, my name is Mike Roberts, and I am the Superintendent/Principal of Wishram School District #94. My wife and I moved to the Gorge in 2015 shortly after I accepted my position here. We are a small, rural district that sits on the Columbia River Gorge. We currently have 72 students enrolled in grades Pre-K-12. Our students enjoy many of the same courses, activities, and experiences as they would if they attended a large comprehensive school district.
In Wishram, I have found a school district that is dedicated to educating the whole student. We have the opportunity to really get to know each of our students, and watch them grow up, sometimes from age 3 to 18, and that is a tremendously beneficial circumstance. Since I started here, we have been able to accomplish some wonderful goals.
Through tireless efforts from our students and staff we have collected every missing assignment since the 2015/2016 school year. We have been able to create a fully online Running Start Program for our high school Juniors and Seniors, and we have an athletic participation rate of 82% in our secondary student population. At Wishram School, we are dedicated to maximizing educational outcomes for all learners, and we are willing to do whatever it takes to guide our students to personal and professional success.
