Having my third son now a Sophomore at WHS- I have to say that I couldn't be more pleased with the level of education, sports and school activities. Administration and teachers seem to do a great job with their respective duties.

Absolutely outstanding school! The kids are good, overachieving kids, there is very minimal drug use which seems to be a very big problem at Lincoln High School. The kids are very respectful and are college-bound. I recommend this school to anyone in the area.

As a student I loved going to Whitney. The teachers are great at their jobs and there is so much to get involved with. The school spirit is phenomenal. I just finished my first year of college and I feel that Whitney High prepared me for the rigors and challenges of college.

I have a freshman at Whitney and so far, he has had an overall positive experience there. He has commented that he had more homework compared to the homework at the middle school he attended in Rocklin. It seems like it has been a breeze his freshman year getting all A's in his classes. My concern is if the teachers are preparing the students for what is to come at the college level especially after reading one of the comments from a previous student that Whitney did not prepare them for the challenging college courses. Also, why is Rocklin High still scoring 20 points higher than Whitney on API?

The teachers are very demanding. The art teacher is really talented and brings out the best in her students. The music instructor is very detail-oriented while he multitasks with all those different musical groups. The support staff was wonderful, helpful and patient with helping my daughter choose her courses for next year. She is quite the drama queen and excited to particiate the the wonderful drama group next year. The JV football coach somehow has managed to motivate my lazy, but smart, Freshman into being on time and excited to work for early morning practice three days a week. They even keep us apprised of college scholarship opportunities! Every teacher and all the support staff give their best efforts daily, and it shows!

Whitney is a young school that has many accomplishments to boast in its short existance. It has an excellent academic program with great test scores and great sports programs as well. Whitney has accomplished more in just a few years than most schools do in 10 years. Maybe someday it will get the recognition it deserves considering the amount of negativity thrown across town by some of the students and parents from Rocklin High. We live in the same town people, lets root for ALL the kids in our town to do well.

Whitney High does have an amazing faculty and a beautiful campus, but as a previous student I feel that their teaching methods set us students up for failure. Everyone I know, including myself, in college agrees that college is about a hundred times harder than what the Whitney prepared us for. There are no essential skills in college, and if you fail a test you can not just simply retake it the way we could at Whitney. How our English teachers showed us to format our essays is nothing like how college professors want an essay, and in college you cannot turn in late assignments the way we could at Whitney. Sure Whitney had great spirit and events, and parents seem to love it for the community involvement. But Whitney High doesn't prepare you well for the real world.

While WHS has some of the best test scores and what-not around I don't feel I actually learned anything in my 4 years of attendance here. I graduated a year ago and now, while attending junior college like most WHS graduates I have found that the way they've prepared us is flawed. WHS teaches kids how to skate by, and if you fail anything, you can retake it. sure, wow it is easy to pass, but what you get out of it is very little unless you really push yourself or are in AVID or something. Oh, and there are alot of crime-like problems here. People's belongings, as well as teacher's keys and computer parts are always being stolen. And there are ALOT of kids on drug. On thing I must say, about 99% of the teachers are amazing. But it seems even they get discouraged with the grading at times.

Great school.It has this 'feel at home' feeling to it everytime I go there to pick up my kids,attend school programs.The staff are very helpful&pleasant. I'm so glad my kids go there.

I love, love, love this school. I couldn't be happier. I do have at lease one teacher who I don't understand, but all my other teachers and wonderful, and funny, and just so exciting to learn with. Art is very much encouraged at this school and everyone has great sportsman ship. We have some of the coolest atheletes and coaches and some of the most interesting clubs. The only way you could fail at Whitney High is if you don't do your homework or you don't ask questions. I feel safe around teachers which is a huge thing and they are always there for you. Negative things: Just the usual occasional crazy students and the principal. She isn't a bad principal, just annoying and I could disagree with a few of her opinions and rules. For a good education and a comfortable campus, go to WHS. Go Cats!

I have a son and a daughter attending Whitney High School and I am very impressed with the staff. They have a great balance of youthful energy and communicating expectation. The kids are active in athletics and leadership activities and have developed a strong sense of self, as a result. My eldest is part of the first class to go 4 years at Whitney and find it tough to imagine a better experience for her.

Faculty and staff are some of the most youthful and dedicated to excellence that I have seen come from a high school. Especially taking in to consideration that the school has only been open for a few years.

WHS actually improved their API again from 810 to 824. It's been 3 years now and the school is almost fully populated. Next year's result will be the indicater of WHS since the first batch of Rocklin High transfers already graduated in June. Overall, I think the school is successful in building academic momentum. My son is on his 2nd year in WHS and we have not seen or noticed any bullying. Maybe the previous parents post is a one-time occurrence. I must admit though that the school needs to be more diversified in its staff and students.

Beautiful campus, fantastic teachers, so much to offer a student - how unfortunate that the administration sweeps the bully problem under the rug. good kids are being transferred out, while troublemaking poorly performing students are only given a slap on the wrist for threats of physical violence and bullying. so much for zero-tolerance, anti-bullying rules here. We transferred our child out when, after 4 months of threats and verbal abuse against our child kept going ignored by the principal. What a shame that a very small number of troublemakers are ruining what could and should be one of the best schools around. Bottom Line: It doesn't matter what a school has to offer if the opportunities are not offered in a safe environment. And, please stop boasting about API scores the 1st 2 years of opening. The scores are high because most of the students attending WHS came out of Rocklin High School and Granite Oaks Middle School - 2 top performing schools in the area.

Awsome leadership at this school. Staff is very informative to the parents. The principal definetly knows what she is doing and she is doing it right!

I am a parent of a child at Whitney High School. We actually live in the Rocklin High School District, but received an intradistrict transfer so our child could attend Whitney High. The quality of teachers at Whitney High is unbelievable, the campus extraordinary and the activities are plentiful. I am not sure how Whitney is any less safe than any other school as the other parent stated. Possibly they did not have one at Rocklin High. I have parented a child at each and assure you that there is a first class education to be had at Whitney.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
