    I began Whitfield School in the 7th grade, fall of 2013, and I just graduated high school May 28, 2019.
    I feel that Whitfield really embraced me in its school community, as there is no perfect place I really think that the student body, parents, faculty, and staff really make people of different ethnicities feel welcome at the school.
    The school moto of habits of mind and heart, is what makes the entire school community feel this since of cohesiveness. There's dialogue on differnces during class seminars in subjects such as world government, world and American history, and
    the teachers at Whitfield do a dynamic job of leading these types of discussions that sometime can be difficult, which brings me back to the school moto of habits of mind and heart, embracing others differences.
    I will always love and feel very connected to my secondary learning community Whitfield School.

    The school promotes cultural diversity, success, confidence and innovation as part of their mission statement. The curriculum provides rigor and innovation. The small student body population allows each student to succeed and prepares them to succeed in college and to adapt to challenges and changes in the world. The staff and administration know each student by their names and they truly care about the students. There's a sense of family within this small, adhesive school community and the students thrive and succeed.
    Whitfield does provide a good education, and prepares students for college well. The college prep program is well-run, and the teachers are usually very knowledgeable of their subjects and the small class sizes make it easy for students to have one-on-one time with their teachers. However, Whitfield does have its problems. The school has hired teachers in the past that are clearly unqualified to teach at this type of institution, causing the students education to be lacking in said subject for that year. The school also shies away from controversy, being more likely to shut down a controversial discussion about current events rather than encourage it. This also means the administration is more ready to listen to parents who are paying the school rather than students who are attending. Finally, the lunch services are sub-par and the main options are often not food children want to eat.
