Our School

Twenty-five years ago, West Wendover opened its doors to the students and families of West Wendover, Nevada. Since sending out our first graduating class of 28 students, we have dedicated our school to meet the educational needs of all students by helping them build bridges to graduation. 

We proudly offer a challenging academic curriculum based on Common Core Standards and supplemented with a variety of extracurricular programs and services that enhance the student learning experience and help to build real-world skills like leadership, teamwork, and communication.
