33 Parent Reviews for Walt Whitman High School

I am not sure why this school has the reputation that it does. Zero diversity and elitist. Students test well, but many of them are incredibly rude, self entitled, non accepting - basically a-holes. If you do not come from a wealthy family, you will not fit in. There are some down to earth teachers, ...  Read more

I just graduated from Whitman, and I can say that I know I'm going to really miss it. The administration is beyond phenomenal, and I can say that this school has some great teachers (and some bad ones, like every school) that I know I will visit on my college breaks. The extracurricular activities ...  Read more

As a former Whitman student , currently studying at Princeton, I can confirm that this school prepares you for the top U.S colleges. I find myself better prepared than most of my current class mates.

One of the finest if not the finest public school in montgomery county. My 2 daughters graduated from Walt Whitman and moved on to Under Grad + Gradschool. A wonderful community and great support.

Whitman truly is a great school. As a former student who is now attending a top college, I credit Whitman for making me well-prepared for the college atmosphere. I think the statistics speak for themselves: Whitman has been rated a top 100 public high school for the past several years, and sends boatloads ...  Read more

As a whole, Whitman is a great school. I am currently a student and I love it. The academics are rigorous and demanding and most of the teachers are sweet, and push you to your best. There are many sports to choose from, as well as clubs. Although some students might be a little too arrogant and uninteresting, ...  Read more

Whitman is an extremely impersonal and arrogant school as a whole. I know. I go there. Yeah it has competitive academics and athletics. But in most of my classes, if i wanted to, i could just sit through four years of high school and never be noticed by anyone. Unfortunately, the surrounding area ...  Read more
