Going to WHS is like going to College. You have an abundance of studies you can follow or extracurricular activities. It's more than I ever had available in AHSD. WHS is forward-thinking-teaching activities, technologies, studies! It's been a great place for both of my kids to learn and grow. The teachers are communicative and seem to genuinely care about the student's progress. The high school size is intimidating, but the kids seem to do okay with it once they are used to it. The cafeteria varieties are excellent as well!
