Washington State History is a requirement for graduation.
Most students take Washington State History in 7th or 8th grade to meet the graduation requirement. In addition to taking it individually, we offer a field experience class for our 8th grade students. If students did not complete Washington State history prior to 9th grade we offer it one on one for high school social studies elective credit.
