Wetaskiwin Composite High School serves the needs of approximately 900 students from the City of Wetaskiwin, Town of Millet and the rural area of the County of Wetaskiwin, east of Highway 2.  In addition, First Nations students from the Four Nations Reserve south of Wetaskiwin are served through a tuition agreement with the Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools.

Approximately 44 percent of students attending Wetaskiwin Composite are bussed to the school with the remainder coming from the City of Wetaskiwin.  Students represent the diverse population of the jurisdiction from traditional conservative, small-town/rural values to more liberal large urban values.

The school has a professional staffing complement of 52 teachers and an additional 29 support staff consisting of Administrative Assistants, custodians, and educational assistants. 

Wetaskiwin Composite High School is approximately 6,500 square meters in size.  It is located next to the City of Wetaskiwin Recreation Complex which consists of an indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, two ice arenas, curling rink, baseball diamonds and football/soccer field.

As Grade 9 students near the end of their Junior High years, the WCHS Student Services Department engages in an extensive orientation program to make the transition from grade 9 to high school a smooth and worry-free experience.  The orientation includes school visits, program information, Parent-Family Orientation Nights, and one on one registration assistance.

The 2017-2018 School Year sees the incorporation of Grade 8's coming over to the High School for Grade 9. The process described above was implemented for the incoming Grade 9's to help facilitate a smooth transition and alleviate the worry of this new endeavour.
