About Our School

  • Western International High School is a multicultural community of students and staff to optimize support for success. The diverse enrollment includes one of the largest bilingual populations in the state of Michigan! 

    Western offers various career pathway programs that highlight the students' strengths and steering their education to prepare them for college. The pathways offered include the Engineering Mobility and TEACH (Technology, Engineering, and Clinical Health). In addition to the career pathways, Western has a great Vocational Tech program that allows students to get first-hand experience in the professional field of their choosing. 

    Universities have partnered with Western to provide additional support and guidance for students throughout their high school career. Wayne State University and Central Michigan University provide assistence through their College Upward Bound Programs. 

    Ultimately we endeavor to connect every student with job site experience, college admittance, scholarships (32 million in 2018), and certifications to enter the work force right after high school. WHEN STUDENTS RISE, WE ALL RISE!
