I wish there was somewhere else my kids could go. Kids are supposed to wear a school uniform shirt. About 1/2 of the kids don't. I see kids cutting school and fighting all the time. Teachers and office staff are a joke. You can walk into the office and they all ignore you. My kids are not learing much of anything at this school. I may home school them next year.

WHIS might be a small school but excellant in Robotics and in electric cars received many top awards, might not rank high in sports but in vocational & technical & computers students are prepared for the outside world. This year 2009 WHIS won the Championship in Girl's Softball & Boy's soccer team. Class might be small but at least teacher can deal with students one on one, big classes sometimes students gets missed.
