    Unfortunately this school do not provide diversity for classes for the students and they don't promote cultural development. The staff attitude in the administration reflect they work only for a check and they are not friendly or polite. Teachers are very good at least the majority look after the student. The communication between administration and teachers is awful and it affects the students directly. Many issues in school regarding students that brought guns to school and problematic students. As a parent there is more concerns than benefits in this school.

    I graduated from this school in 2010 and had a wonderful experience. The teachers there encouraged all of us to strive for our best. There was hardly any bullying we went above and beyond to make every type of person fell welcomed and accepted. I have seen that spirit continue in the grades after mine and from before. It has the small town feel that everyone craves and I wouldn't trade my memories there for anything. I do however feel that some of there policies on homework and retesting while I was there made school to easy. I often tell people that if you can't graduate from Whiteland then you have serious problems because they give you to many chances there. When I went there homework was only 10 percent of your grade and we could retake any test we scored badly with very small penalties. If that wasn't enough we had kids in my class who slacked off the first 3 years of school getting ds and f's and then the last year went to Whitelands academy and graduated higher then the people who worked hard all 4 years. All in all though Whiteland is an amazing school with wonderful people and everyone there really helped prepare me for life after high school.

    My two older children graduated from here and my youngest will graduate this year (2010). I think this is an excellent school with lots of extracurricular activities. Whiteland has excellent teachers and staff with tons of school spirit. They also have many classes and programs for the gifted students.

    This is a great school. The teachers really care about their students. The deans are also really cool and will be there when you need them and won't go over the top with punishments. I've been here since 5th grade and still attending. I am a sophmore and proud to be a Whiteland Warrior. )

    I am a graduate of WCHS (1977). My Son is a freshman this year and had an older sister attend and Graduate from this school. The school upgrades are fantastic the quality of the teachers administrators and community involvement is second to none. The overall school leadership is superior and I believe to be the best in central Indiana. I like what I see so far from our new Principle his passion committment and energy is great to see. The direction is clearly focused on the students and setting them up to succeed in a safe diverse open and quality environment. Thanks for providing a great experience for my children.

    I'm actually a senior at Whiteland and have been a student since 5th grade. I really enjoy this school. I think they have plenty of good extracurricular activities there is definitely something for everyone. They even have plenty of clubs during school. I'm sure parental involvement could go up in some areas. The school in general has a really good atmosphere. The building is new and bright. The teachers are very good and really care about us.
