In 2004, North Wasco County School Districts 9 and 12 combined to form one school district in The Dalles: SD 21 (this number being chosen as it is the sum of 9 and 12). School District 21 immediately combined Wahtonka High School and The Dalles High School into "The Dalles Wahtonka Union High School". Later the "Union" was dropped, shortening the name to the current "The Dalles Wahtonka High School".
 Main campus
The Main campus, has housed grades 9–12 since the 2009-2010 school year.
 Alternative Education/West campus
The Alternative Education campus - also known as Discovery High School/Disco High/Alt. Ed. - houses select students of grades 9-12 as an opportunity to allow students to fulfill their education in a slower-paced environment. This campus was moved from the former Chenoweth Middle School building to the former Wahtonka High School Building prior to the 2009-2010 school year.
The Dalles Wahtonka High is (since 2010) using a "credit by proficiency" system. According to the Oregon Department of Education, "this provides students the opportunity to earn graduation credits within Oregon’s standards-based system by demonstrating what they know and can do. Students may demonstrate proficiency through classroom work or documentation of learning experiences outside of school, or through a combination of these means."
