The Science Research and Engineering programs are outstanding opportunities for students wanting to get into the STEM fields. The Dual Language program has expanded at the high school leading the way for students to soon be graduating with the New York State Seal of Biliteracy (NYSSB). The Music program is incredible with students receiving instruction every other day. Combined with a rich diverse population, this district is INCREDIBLE!

As my final year comes to an end at White Plains High School, I can tell my experience in this school. The public high school is very diverse and lively in school spirit, the school tries to create a good experience for students and teachers by updating technology and making sure the classrooms are clean and supplied with more than enough supplies to make the learning easy and helpful. The security and police officers make sure the school is safe, and the administrators help with the students accordingly. The best parts of the school for me personally were the STEM classrooms in the school, the teachers in stem care very much about their students learning and make the classroom activities very hands-on learning experiences.
Besides the academic standards being outstanding, the community, staff and location is overall amazing. I loved being a student there because there was always support and a great environment to create your college legacy in. I would send my future children there if I stay in New York!
