Open Quote I went to WHS all 4 years of high school. It was the greatest experience of my life. I had Mr. Patton (the coolest principle ever) as my principle, and was sad to hear he left the school after my graduation. I was involved in all kinds of extracurricular activities and AP classes. I can honestly say I am thankful for my teachers at that school, all of which actually cared for me personally and in classes. Best school in the area! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
