Whitehall Senior High School Reviews

Whitehall is a school filled with passion. The staff are incredibly understanding and helpful. The energy of the school is very welcoming to learning. On the other hand, there are not very many non-sport activities available through the school. The band, theatre, and choir programs that appear to grow and improve every year, however, they are often overshadowed and disregarded by athletics. For example, the marching band attends every home football game, but the football team has not attended a single marching band competition in the past four years, so it would be fantastic if the football players would return a small bit of graditude for the many hours that the band dedicates to preparing every football game by attending a band performance. This is just one example of many missed opportunities for interaction between the programs. Overall Whitehall is well-rounded when it comes to academics and athletics, but there is plenty of room for improvement in other areas.

After cycling through a variety of towns and school districts I never thought I would have the privileged of arriving at one that felt like a dream. Bet you don't hear many highschool students cast their schools in such a positive light, but Whitehall Senior High-School deserves it. I arrived in the district after medically withdrawing from my previous school after various suicide attempts meaning.. I had to redo a year of highschool. Rearranging my credits and classes was a breeze! I only attended 2 years of schooling at this establishment and want to know a secret?? I want to attend more... I cannot adequately explain who helpful, open, and accepting the staff is when it comes to personal and academic guidance. If I wrote about all the ways this school helped me you'd be reading for hours. I'll spare you my meandering and assure you that I was blessed with the highest quality of schooling at Whitehall any student could ask for.
Overall, it's a great school! Though, it does have its flaws. There's a major mental health issue plaguing the school, which the staff should do something about. It's great with diabetes and administering medicine. There's not a bullying problem, and students are encouraged to take as many challenging courses as they'd like.
