Whitney High School Reviews

Overall great experience, all teachers I've had genuinely care and are dedicated to their work and students' success. Clubs were either extremely present or completely unknown. Sports games were fun and our basketball teams are godly. Arts departments are amazing but underappreciated. Most fun I've had would probably be in the dance program, which is nice because you can start as a total beginner and still progress as a dancer. AP teachers I've had are literal legends, all of them probably over-prepared me for my AP tests and definitely are the reason I passed subjects I was struggling in.

This school made my high school experience unforgettable. It was a school where all felt accepted and like there was a place for them social-wise. I was involved with the dance team, cheer team, and leadership and those absolutely promoted my memorable experience here. Also, there is no other high school with as much school spirit/pride as Whitney. Most students always participated in sports, clubs, attending games and competitions. They also strongly supported inclusion in that, again, everyone had a place in which they felt they belonged to. Aside from the fun aspects and what made my high school career so memorable, they're academics were tough. They were not so challenging that students failed, but Whitney expected every student's best and from that, my class along with others, graduated with some very inspirational, smart students that are destined to succeed in adulthood given Whitney's preparation.
Whitney is a great school due to the rigorous courses offered. The teachers interact well with their students and class sizes are relatively small. Rotc is an amazing program to join, not only because of the instructors but there are opportunities in that elective that no other class can offer. Plus they rotc program is one of the best in the state!
