Whitehaven High School Ratings & Reviews

I am currently a senior at Whitehaven High School. I have attended this school since my freshman year and I understand almost everything about what goes on here. Many people (mainly students and parents) are constantly talking about how our school is unorganized. But just stop and think: How organized would you be if you were one of very few adults in a school with over 2,000 kids each year? Of course we are over crowded, but only because so many people feel that Whitehaven High is such a great school with great teachers and administrators and principal. And as for the entire school being punished for a few people's wrong doings? Well, it's like Dr. Hunter always says, we are a family, if one of us mess up then it makes us all look bad. And obviously we have NOT learned that yet, so of course there are still going to be punishments. There has to be some level of discipline giving because we are still CHILDREN! That is what so many students fail to realize. It used to be a proud honor to be able to say that you or your child got into or goes to Whitehaven High... Now many people choose to disgrace the name... It's a real shame what kind of people we have in our community now-a-days.

Whitehaven's a tough nut to crack. The zoning is impressive but the guardrails in the lower teacher's parking lot absolutely need to be fixed. Just a cautionary note: the surrounding area is relatively unsafe for people of a caucasian background (hence: 'whitehaven'). Great band though

The review by the 9th grader below is on point. Whitehaven does a better job than most Memphis schools of projecting a decent public image, mainly due to its championship caliber football team and good band. However, there is much to be desired behind closed doors. There is a small pocket of excellence, if your child is self-motivated and disciplined he/she will thrive within that pocket. Otherwise, they will have to do their best to find some sense of order amongst chaos, if they are not contributing to the chaos themselves.

This is a school that yes has it's flaws like every other public school. It has it's fights and drama, but I can honestly say that it is a school that is mainly well behaved and has great administration. Scholarships are very prominent here because of the great counselors. It has a balance of academics and excellent extra curricular activities. It has an excellent football and basketball team. And they have a 3-time national championship winning band. All in all, this is a pretty okay school.

I am a 9th grader at whitehaven and i HATE IT! The students are ridiculously wild and most of the time the good have to suffer with the bad and thats ALOT. The school is WAY overcrowded and the staff are extremely disorganized and never communicate, so you can get suspended over something unnecessary. Its more like a prison than a school and i dreaded going there. Most kids could care less about their education and just come to talk. We spent half of the year sitting in the auditorium watching movies and were woefully unprepared for exams. Some of the teachers try so hard to help but they dont have the power to do whatever the need to. Sports are put over academics. Band is put over everything. Please dont send your kids here just because of the scholarships. Your kids wont be fully prepared to finish the full years on that scholarship!
