WRAP is a 4 district cooperative serving students from the Enumclaw, Sumner, Orting and White River school districts. Our program is located in Buckley, Washington.
Our teachers are White River Education Association members who are Washington State certified to provide online instruction to students in grades 9-12. We provide traditional core and elective classes in a nontraditional manner through our online learning platform using primarily Apex Learning curriculum. The comprehensive online content is rich with interactivity and actively engages students in learning as they read, listen, discuss, inquire, watch, explore, manipulate objects and data, and write. Courses include formative assessments that provide feedback to students and teachers, and summative assessments that include both open-ended (teacher-scored) and objective (computer-scored) instruments. Our courses are designed to meet Washington State goals through standards-based learning.
Students enroll in online learning for a variety of reasons. Some students take courses in order to complete requirements for graduation, or access courses that may not be available at their resident school, some choose online learning because it allows them to pursue personal talents or travels while remaining on schedule for graduation, some home school students choose online learning to supplement or enrich their curriculum, and some students choose online learning when personal or medical issues prevent their regular attendance at school. Our mission is to provide flexible and rigorous academic experiences to meet the needs of our students through the use of innovative technology paired with skilled and caring instructors and support staff.
We currently offer required core courses in the areas of language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, foreign language, physical education, health and fine arts . We also offer AP classes in English, social studies, science, math and foreign language through Apex Learning.
Our courses align with the Washington State essential academic learning requirements. Each course is developed by experienced instructors and subject matter experts and aligned to state and national standards.
Our teachers are all White River Education Association members and hold valid Washington State teaching certificates. In addition, our teachers all meet the definition of “high qualified” as required by the NCLB Act.
All of our Advanced Placement courses are offered through Apex Learning utilizing an Apex Learning instructor. All Apex Learning AP courses have received approval from the College Board to display the AP designation. In addition, the AP courses align to the scope and sequence outlined by the College Board.
Our courses are made accessible by a richly customized platform designed and implemented by Apex Learning.
