Our family has graduated 5 generations from WHS. I've not had cause to be at the school often, but I can attest to the quality of instruction, through the experience of my children. My time there is too remote to be relevant, but my children were relatively recent. Their reading levels are more than adequate (avid readers even today) and mathematics remarkable. Both are successful tradespersons. They speak well of their positive experience there. One gets out relative to what one puts in.
