Has improved in the past 2 Years. There are a few teachers that need to retire that are a problem but I would think this happens at most schools.

I've gone to a fair share of H.S. throughout my time and I learned the least at WP. Bullying is highly overlooked and the administration has never treated me or my family kindly. Everyone has gone to school with each other since pre-K too, not very new-kid friendly.

A very disappointing high school administration with poor leadership skills and are unwilling to cooperate with law authority. Administration also displays a lack of communication amongst parents and children that are well below average. Fortunately, many of the teachers do not choose to follow in the same manner as the head administration. Many teachers do truly care about the children and parents best educational interest.

The teachers are all great. I'm not so sure about the administration though. Instead of putting so much of the money towards the sports that actually do well, maybe they should hire a hall monitor or two. Maybe then there wouldn't be so much going on when no ones looking. They should also put more money into the music and art classes. Sports are important but an education is forever.

Whitney Point High does not have much in the way of money, in any sense, but the teachers are excellent. Due to budget problems many afterschool activities have been scrapped, but the teachers are always there for the students.
