Lackluster in everyway. Administrators are unqualified and egotistical. Made the mistake of allowing my child to attend freshman year there - dismal results. Made the choice of moving him to Glacier High School in Kalispell - the focus there is on the students, as it should be. Whitefish High School is not a positive learning environment and the abjectly dismal test scores show it. New building won't fix the deeper problems in that school.
High standards and expectations for kids. Some excellent teachers. Some not so, pretty typical. Best thing- small class sizes, kids are noticed. A tightness because of small size. My child was well prepared to enter college. Main problem - principal is too controlling and does not understand that these kids need to be prepared to go out in the world and be equipped to make decisions. Hoping that will change as he learns to trust kids more.
Whitefish High School students score exceptionally well on the SAT's, ACT's, MUSWA, and CRT's. Students currently attend or have attended Princeton, Harvard, Stanford, University of Pennsylvania, Dartmouth, Cornell, Williams, Middlebury, St. Lawrence, USC, West Point, U. S. Air Force Academy, and more. Not only are students accepted to these schools, but they continue to perform exceptionally well in their course work. Students return to tell the teachers here how well prepared they were for the rigors of college level work. We cannot be prouder of our students and their successes.
My daughter will be graduating this year, having completed all 13 years of schooling in Whitefish. We are so fortunate to have the teachers in this district! They genuinely care about their students and go the extra mile for them when needed. She will be entering the University of Montana next year superbly prepared! Thank you, Whitefish High School!
The teachers are well rounded and hold each student to what they think is there highest standard. The school is a good place for kids to be welcomed. Sports are strong. There is a drug and alcahol problem in this school
Great teachers that treat the kids well, but aren't there to babysit them. Great learning enviroment.
Whitefish has some amazing teachers, however they arn't flexable at all when i comes to students needs. Even though there are some good teachers, it has it's fare share of bad ones.
As a Former student, Whitefish High School pushes there kids to strive for the best and nothing less.
Horrible school full of snobby stuck up people. Teaches kids differences are wrong. Has too high of expectations, and sports are the most important thing to the school.
