The WJHS Learning Commons, located on the second floor, is the not just a place that holds books. It is a versatile space, focused on collaboration and resource exploration.

    Remodeled in 2016, the LC offers numerous furniture and shelving configurations, along with a high-definition TV production lab. With over 8,000 items in our physical collection, as well as access to numerous online reference databases, students and staff have access to the latest resources.

    The Learning Commons is open to students anytime during regular school hours, 8:00 A.M. to 2:50 P.M. Before school, students can work in the LC beginning at 7:30 A.M., provided they have a pass from a teacher ahead of time. After school, the LC is open for book checkout until 3:00 P.M.
