I am a graduate of WRHS and I am very surprised how many high ratings this school has gotten. The only thing WRHS excels in is friendliness. The low standards at this school are unbelievable. Teachers are required to accept late work regardless of whether the student was legitimately sick or didn't want ...  Read more

I am a current student at White River High School and I love it, every school has its flaws and problems but WRHS has turned around a lot from when I was a freshman.

White River has been experiencing major disciplinary and teacher issues. All of which are very concerning. Their special ed math program is questionable, at best. Some teachers more less mature than their students.

Posted by a parent on 05/30/07

I see that the best scores have all been given by current or graduated students. I think I shall be the one to break the mold. White River High School has major issues with discipline and student expectations. If a student misbehaves, their disciplinary system is far too forgiving and with gaping loop-holes. ...  Read more
