Whitefish High School Ratings & Reviews
Are we a school or a penitentiary? We are so strict, we can not even go to the bathroom without an adult. I am 18, I should be allowed to go to the bathroom alone. I just do not know anymore and that makes me super super sad.
Whitefish High School is caring and supportive with a high level of pride and achievement. The environment allows students to flourish academically. Sometimes the expectations are inconsistent or not universally applied. Sports are hit or miss depending on the class and quality of coaching. Overall excellent staff and school.
First off, the teachers. For the majority of them, they only care and cater to students who are academically gifted. For those who struggle, but still give a 100% effort, There is not much hope for them. There are some teachers there, that need to be let go but because of ten year, they stay. These teachers CAN NOT teach.
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.
