Open Quote Whitefish Bay High School is located in a great location. I feel very safe while at school, and most of my classmates are quite friendly. Although many students feel that they are better than everyone else, and will love to tell you about their high GPA, good grades, and impressive Act score. Whitefish Bay offers high level education, however most classes can be described as "independent." Basically meaning that students must learn only from what they learn in class, as teachers seem annoyed to give extra help. They may suggest hiring a tutor to teach what they have failed to help the student understand. If you care about getting good grades, you can expect 3 or more hours of homework each night. On a better note, the sports programs and music department are remarkable. 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.
