The Washington State high school diploma was developed to be flexible, meaningful, and achievable.
All students deserve a meaningful education that helps them achieve their academic and life goals. Whether deciding to pursue a career as a doctor or a machinist, serve in the military or enter the technology sector, Washington State students have numerous career choices post-high school. Washington state’s high school diploma provides students with the skills and knowledge needed to pursue their dreams and demonstrate that no matter what path they pursue after high school, they are ready for work, continued education, and other opportunities.
