Hudson's Bay High School is a public high school in the Central Park area of Vancouver, Washington, and is part of Vancouver Public Schools. It was founded in 1955[3] and was named after the Hudson's Bay Company (HBC), as Fort Vancouver had been chosen, in 1821, as the HBC base of operations on the Pacific Slope.[4]: 369–370  Hudson's Bay is known for having two strong magnet programs, as well as a children's day care and district-wide mothers' transportation program. It is located across from Clark College, where many Bay students participate in the Running Start program.

Magnet Programs[edit]

Hudson's Bay offers two magnet programs—Careers in Education, and Habitat and Civil Engineering.

Careers in Education[edit]

The Careers in Education magnet program prepares students for future careers in the fields of child development, family psychology, teaching, and instructional theory. Students take courses focused on these topics, and apply their learning through direct interaction with infants and children.[5]

Habitat and Civil Engineering[edit]

The Habitat and Civil Engineering magnet is a four-year program that offers in-depth education to those students planning careers in urban horticulture, landscaping, ecology, Urban planning, Civil engineering, and Architecture. Students apply their learning working in Hudson Bay's horticulture center, nursery, and science park, and through internships and work experience.[6]


Hudson's Bay is a member of the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) and participates in the Greater St. Helens 2A league.
