About Us

WHS students on field trip to Macy's Garden Show, MinneapolisWatershed was started in 1996 for students pursuing a Waldorf education. In 2002, Watershed High School became a tuition-free public charter school.

Students at Watershed High School are supportive of one another creating an atmosphere in which the gifts of each individual can emerge and be valued. In our community, every student is an honored student.

Our dress code is minimal - no hate speech, pejorative slogans, or otherwise offensive content on apparel; otherwise, dress as you like. There are no "right" brands, no "wrong" style. Come as you are. We want to get to know you!
