I have never seen such an unorganized and unprepared school as WIHI.The first few weeks of school start off as a struggle for a majority of students to fix their schedules and get into the classes they initially marked at the end of the previous school year.While I was at WIHI, the office temporarily lost my medical file and wasn't sure if I was allowed to use one of the school's epi-pens in case of an allergic reaction.The teachers are really where the school shines, as they work hard and build personal connections with students as well as parents in order to maintain transparency and trust; they truly want their students to succeed.Unfortunately most WIHI teachers have a tendency to leave after an average of about 2 years at the school often due to higher-paying offers with more benefits for the teachers.Overall WIHI lacks the structure and organization you'd expect from an average public school and unless it is close to home and easily accessible it isn't worth the hassle.

WIHI is very dedicated to the IB program and making sure students maintain good mental health and extra curricular activities. Teachers are very caring and form good relationships with students. However the STEM program is not what I would have liked. The competition math prep is not good and competition science limited to HOSA and Science Olympiad. Both of which do fairly well however it could be better, the math is no where near what it should be however. The forensics program however is very good and if you are interested in the humanities you should definitely highly consider this school.
I love Washtenaw International High school. This is an IB school so if you reach all the requirements you will be able to receive an IB diploma by the end on your senior year which is helpful when applying to college and overall is good to work for in order to teach work ethic and achievement. This school is based around diversity 100% and is such a safe place to be, you will definitely feel safe here no matter where you come from or what your beliefs are. I will say, it is a very liberal school considering it is not traditional American views and is very accepting which doesn't bother me being a liberal myself. But if you are a conservative or consider yourself more of a Republican it might be a bit harder for you to fit in just due to the fact it is so open-minded. But even so, conservative or just an introvert, you will still feel safe here and will have friends in no time mostly if you like it or not. Please come!!
