10 Parent Reviews for Whiting High School

I'm a Hispanic parent of 2 Whiting High school students and one graduate. Not once have my kids or I experienced any form of belittle or racism. On the contrary we were very well accepted when we arrived in 2008. I have a son with a learning disability and I have his teachers cell phone numbers incase ...  Read more

Whiting High School is FANTASTIC learning environment! Everyone has a chance for success. Our teachers take extra time if we don't understand something. Our classes are academically challenging. We have a lot of extra curricular and art programs. Our school is small and sweet.

I was so disappointed to see such bad reviews. My child attended a private school for 7 years in Whiting and when we gave Portage (we live there) middle schools a chance, I knew I had to put my son back into a small school environment. We are Hispanic and have NEVER been discriminated in any way. I truly ...  Read more

This school frowns upon children that are not in the click at Whiting HS. You either need to be in a click, or you are not looked at for anything. There are quite of bit high school politics and it is not fair for the ones that deserve a recognition. Yet, become a coach at Whiting, your child will ...  Read more

It's a school in name only. I was fortunate enough to 'escape' by my Junior year and it's a completely different world 'out there'. There was no academic challenge at Whiting High School, instead we were force fed outdated theories and notions. Creativity and expression were severely frowned upon, ...  Read more

Jaime and I graduated together and I agree with her to a point. I agree that I had a wonderful experience at Whiting High School but I have a little Brother and A little sister who are attending both Whiting High and Whiting Middle School and things have definately declined since I graduated in 2002. ...  Read more

I'm not a parent either, but a former student. I attended this school for most of my school years and my brother JJ graduated from here. This is the best school in the area and the teachers are so helpful and nice. I wouldn't trade my experience at Whiting for anything.

Not a parent, but a former high school grad...Must say that this school (in all of it's programs) is the best in the area and I wouldn't trade my experience here for anything....
