For information on class dues or to find out how much dues your child owes, contact the advisor in charge, Ms. Samantha Cornwell at

Student Parking

Student Parking Permits for 2019-20 are NOT AVAILABLE to juniors at this time. 

There will be a limited number of daily parking passes available for $2.00 per pass. Juniors are eligible to purchase 5 daily passes per quarter. Juniors  must show their license and provide make/model of car at time of purchase in order to receive a day pass. Because daily passes are limited, Juniors are encouraged to purchase a pass at least 24 hours in advance to secure a spot.

In addition,  there will be a limited number of Sports Parking passes available to juniors who participate on a WRHS Fall sport team.  Please request this pass through your coach.

A reminder: Parking on campus without a proper pass or permit will result in a parking ticket.

Driver's Ed

Getting a Driver's License: Are you 16 years old and ready to get your driver's license? Check out the WRHS Driver Ed. program. The classes are held after school at the high school. It couldn't be more convenient.


SAT Registration/Administration: Students must register for the SAT online. There is no more standby testing. Students with questions should contact their guidance counselor. For information on SATs and to register, please visit the College Board website.
Please review these rules for taking the SAT:

  • All testers must have an acceptable ID (Driver's license, passport, school ID, state ID) with a passport-quality headshot that must resemble their present appearance. Even with a picture on a registration ticket and even if we know the students personally, we cannot admit them without an acceptable ID.
  • All testers must have their SAT registration ticket with them at all times during test day. Without a ticket, we cannot admit them even if they are on the roster and even if we know them.
  • No more test center or test changes. For example, if someone changes her mind on test day to take a subject test instead of the regular test, we cannot permit the change. The same goes for center changes. A student registered at Burncoat, for example, cannot come to Wachusett.
  • The only test changes possible are non-standard to standard (and vice versa). Those with accommodations can only waive their rights with written permission from a parent or legal guardian. Otherwise they must report to the extended-time proctor. Those registered for the regular SAT or Subject Test, who come with SSD approval letters for extended time (or other accommodations), can switch to the non-standard administration (i.e., they can go to the extended time room).
  • All testers must have a picture on their registration. Exception: 7th/8th-grade talent search students.
