About Us

Whatcom Intergenerational High School (WIHS) is an innovative public charter school located in Bellingham, WA. WIHS will serve 300 students – beginning with 75 ninth grade students in 2020. WIHS is committed to blending Indigenous ways of knowing along with Western teaching and learning practices through our use of Phenomenon-Based Learning, Critical Literacy and Intergenerational Learning.

As a mission-driven public charter school, WIHS will ensure that Whatcom County high school students—regardless of their life circumstances—develop the competencies and agency for success in college, career, and life. We envision learning designed with students and supported by elders, generating deep inquiry skills, thoughtful interactions, and critical consciousness, ensuring every young person can contribute to a more just and sustainable world.
