Lowering of Classroom Ceilings/New LED Lighting in Secondary Building
As a student or faculty member here at Whiting, you will recognize that our classrooms have very tall ceilings. Starting this Summer, that will all change. The classrooms will have new ceilings installed that are much lower and are more climate friendly. Also, lowering the ceilings will help reduce the echo in each classroom. New LED Lights will also help save energy throughout the building. New ceiling tiles are going to be installed to give the classroom ceilings a more updated and nicer appearance. Some classrooms have already had their ceiling's lowered and the staff and students appreciate the new look. This project is set to continue this Summer and to be finished before the next school year. Expect to see pictures of the new updates on the website this Fall.
SECONDARY SCHOOL (7-12)
Since the first graduating class in 1887, Whiting Community School has had a tradition of pride, academic excellence and community support.
In 2005, the Whiting High School received the United States Department of Education's Blue Ribbon School of Excellence Award. With only 295 schools in the nation receiving this honor, Superintendent Myron Ballain and English teacher Myrna Hall traveled to Washington D.C. to accept the award.
In 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2017, the Whiting High School was nationally recognized. This time by U.S. News and World Report as on of "America's Best High Schools." This designation was bestowed on the top 10% of schools in the nation.
We have a lot to be proud of at Whiting High School and expect even greater things to come!
