My experience at MWHS has by far been great! I've felt comfortable with all the amazing staff and outgoing students surrounding me each and every day. Mt.Whitney high school is a school that makes you feel safe and welcomed, the adults there care and treat everyone fairly. There are also many resources for students as well as services of one ever needs help emotionally or academically. This school is full of a high spirit student body who rep and cheer their peers on! As a graduation senior I will miss the amazing football games, pep rally's, and awesome lunch activities! Every student who has a chance to attend this amazing school should really the opportunity.

Mt. Whitney has a smaller campus and population, so it is a friendly environment because mostly everyone knows each other. However, many students have mental health issues. I feel that students should feel encouraged to get help or feel that they are able to speak with someone. Most of the teachers are good, but some of them not so much. Many of the teachers at Whitney try to help us get ready for college and challenge us to critically think. I have had a pleasant experience at Mt. Whitney, but there is always room for improvement.
Mt. Whitney was a really fun high school to attend. The school spirit is so incredible and you can hardly find a seat at games because of how many people want to go to them! The teachers are incredible as well. They really know how to connect with their students in order to create a learning environment that is helpful to most if not all of their students.
