College Place High School is a four year comprehensive high school focused on striving to do school different.
We have set our sights high to create an environment that will not only teach kids but inspire them to be lifelong learners.
We believe this comes to fruition by hiring the right teachers. Teachers who recognize that students learn in more ways than one and they embrace teaching that is outside the box of traditional education. Teachers who believe that project based learning (PBL) connects learning to relevance in the world around us. Teachers who are flexible, creative and purpose driven. Teachers who act and care for each other like a family. Teachers who believe that the success of our students is to graduate with a solid "fifth" year plan and are productive citizens in a global economy. But most importantly, teachers who love to mentor and care for the students in our community.
College Place High School is driven by the CPPS Vision, Mission and Guiding Principles.
