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.
Out of all the schools in my area I stand with the sentiment that WIHI was the best. The small tight-knit community allowed me to make friendships with both the staff and students that will last a lifetime, while also obtaining a great education that has prepared me for education beyond high-school. If you look at their Model UN and Forensics track record, along side where the alumni are attending college, this is very apparent. The only downside to WIHI really is the administration. The IB Coordinator and College Counselor are great, but anybody higher than that; avoid at all costs. It may seem childish to take a dump on the admin while everything else is great--but the administration at WIHI have said the most cruel and mean things to some of my peers, and have showed blatant favoritism towards students. Go for the community and great education. But if you do decide to go, avoid admin.
