Whitmore Lake Public School District Reviews
When going to a school in a small town, I’m sure many people think of their favorite small-town based drama, such as Gilmore Girls or One Tree Hill. They think of all the benefits, such as small class sizes, teachers who personally know their students and an all around tight knit community. Though these all may be true, it comes at a cost. Because so few students go to Whitmore Lake, there aren’t many programs, sports, or extracurricular activities offered. If you interests steer away from the basic popular activities, such as football or basketball, there’s just not enough in the kids in the school to have a program for it. Also, there isn’t very much government funding that goes to small schools. So even with the few programs that are offered, there just enough money funded for these programs to scrape by.
As a student, there are very limited opportunities when it comes to taking AP or honors classes. Some teachers are very helpful and qualified, while others do not push their students toward success. Some other student clubs and groups also do not get the focus they deserve, as there is a very strong focus on sports such as football and basketball. The high school is a very nice building, and several of the other facilities are as well, but the culture and the lack of diversity in the school are things that the district could improve on.
Whitmore Lake is a close-knit community where everyone wants to help each other. Teachers there are wanting to help and while test scores may not be the strongest, the students show improvement throughout the years.
