“We have such a terrific staff at WHHS, from the teachers to the very supportive administration. I love teaching here and couldn't see myself anywhere else! Two of the things I love about WHHS are:

1.  We have something for everyone!  Between sports and the various clubs and activities we offer, there is something for every student to get involved in.

2.  How caring the staff is. The adults in this building truly care about the kids and want to see them succeed in and out of the classroom!”
