Whitmore Lake High School Reviews

I love Whitmore Lake High School. I am a current senior and these past four years have been great! I like this school because it is a comforting place. Our school is very small, so it is very easy to make a lot of friends and get to know people. Also, since we are so small it is very easy to get that one on one time with teachers when needed. I think our teachers do a great job striving to help students anytime needed. Whitmore Lake is better than say a huge school because people are able to get noticed. There is also a very low bullying rate at our school because it is such a comforting place. All in all Whitmore Lake is a great community, and school.

Walking into Whitmore Lake High school, you immediately can tell how close knit the community is. Working together as a student body is not only important, but necessary for us to achieve what we do. The bond formed by the students last forever and WLHS Trojans stand together forever. Not only do we have a personalized education, but as a family we work together with our teachers to make sure we strive and are the best we possibly can be.
The small school community is so beneficial to learning and connection. The inclusivity of everyone to able to play multiple sports and be in clubs is something not often found at bigger schools. The resources offered and WL's constant desire to improve and stay updated is amazing. Teachers are so committed and take the time to get to know all of their students.
