Washtenaw International High School Reviews

I guess that's what you get with younger teachers. Experienced, yet haughty... I have found some of the WiHi teachers to be a bit underwhelming when considering their personalities. Don't get me wrong. There are many personable teachers, but there are some who make me question my presence in the school. Also, diversity within the student population, does not equal diversity throughout the school... Every teacher is Caucasian! Just something to consider before stamping the word diversity everywhere. Overall WiHi is a great place to be, when the people who run it aren't trying to make it what it's not.

Making the decision to transfer to WIHI at the end of my sophomore year was the best decision I've made! I was welcomed into a family, full of support, kindness, and love. Although the academics are rigorous, the support of the teachers, administration, and students is beyond measure.
My four years at WIHI I absolutely loved all the teachers and the school culture. All the teachers have the students' best interest in mind and the school culture thrives on the diverse student body and strong student-led clubs. It is challenging academically but the classes are taught in a manner where you are encouraged to actually learn from the lessons not simply regurgitate information. Very good school, would recommend.
