Overall, my experience at Whitehall High School was one of the most unforgettable. The school here is very diverse and brings many people of different backgrounds and religions. The students are very involved in their academics and try so hard to achieve the best level possible. The time I spent at this school cannot be replaced. The teachers make sure that each student is included, and they try their best to give students a great high school experience throughout the years. All of my memories at Whitehall High School will be cherished as I move into the future.

Whitehall High School is a generic school like all others. It doesn't necessarily have anything that separates it from any other school, however, it does generate a hospitable environment in which catalyzes your growth throughout the four years. The classes offered are plentiful, and the number of AP classes are also high in amount.
My experience At Whitehall was a very lukewarm one. I enjoyed many moments in that school but there were always downfalls. If I had a good teacher, they would be under supplied. There was always a catch. It was honestly a good experience but I’d like to see them spend less on the new stadium and more on textbooks (most of which are falling apart) and calculators, which were in short supply every year. I will say though the clubs did a good job running on fundraisers and donations and no school money. I probably spent thousands over 4 years on the 5 clubs I was in.
