Mission

Issaquah High School prepares students to fly when they leave the nest by inspiring students to reach their full potential and become lifelong learners who positively impact the world and community in which they live.

Academics at IHS

The Issaquah High School curriculum offers students a well-balanced educational experience. Our school is noted for its rich tradition of providing comprehensive education, including academics, fine arts, technical education and vocational programs. Our curriculum is reviewed each year for relevancy and revision, and new classes are often offered. A number of programs are available for qualified juniors and seniors who wish to take college courses and earn credit at both the high school and college level. Advanced Placement, College in the High School, and College Credit Program classes provide students with the opportunity to get a head start on their post high school goals. In addition, many classes are available both at our school and through WaNIC, a program that allows students from our high school to attend other satellite high school campuses in the area for specialty course study. Issaquah High School also features classes for students whose test scores are below average, qualifying them for additional or alternative assistance.

Free Tutoring

Need help with a class? Issaquah’s National Honor Society is offering free tutoring for any student at Issaquah High School.

Student Schedules

For students whose parents/guardians have completed the RSVP process, schedules will be available to view in Student Access at 8:00 am on August 23rd.  Please note that the schedules are not 100% firm, as there is always some fluidity with enrollment numbers prior to the start of school.

Course Change Process

Students are expected to take the classes they request since this is how we create our master schedule and hire and assign school staff.  There is not enough space in other classes to accommodate widespread changes for unnecessary reasons.   

Appropriate reasons for schedule change requests:  

  1. Seniors who are lacking in a graduation requirement
  2. Students who are misplaced in a course - examples include wrong level of math, wrong level of world language, took summer school for the course, teacher recommends a change to another level based on student level
  3. Incomplete schedule, or double booked period
  4. Running Start schedule conflicts with high school schedule

Please note counselors will only be processing schedule change requests through drop-in meetings via Zoom and in person.  No schedule change requests will be processed via email.
