Welcome Message

  • Wildcats,

    I am pleased to welcome you to West Ashley High School (WAHS), located in West Ashley, SC. WAHS is proud to serve a diverse population of approximately 2,000 students from the West Ashley community. We have amazing faculty and staff members who are committed to providing an engaging and challenging educational experience for your child, in a safe environment. While there are many great options in Charleston when selecting the right school for your student, I am confident that WAHS will exceed expectations as your neighborhood high school.

    Students at WAHS have access to over 180 courses to meet their individual interests and needs. Course offerings include various courses ranging in rigor, including intervention, college prep (CP), honors, over 30 Advanced Placement (AP), and numerous dual enrollment options. In addition to these offerings, we also share a campus with the West Ashley Center for Advanced Studies (WACAS), where students can complete programs in various fields outside traditional CTE pathways.

    Students also have the opportunity to showcase and develop their creativity and artistry through various fine arts programs, led by talented and experienced artists and musicians. They have the option to enroll in our ROTC program or participate in competitive 5A athletic programs coached by accomplished former athletes.

    We are confident in the steps our school continues to take forward with student achievement, as well as preparing them for life after graduation.

    Welcome to WAHS, where we strive to serve and support each student's journey to success!

    Andy Brandt
    Principal, West Ashley High School
