"When I first came here, I didn't want to leave all my friends behind, but now that I've been here, this has become my family. I don't want to leave this school. You always have a place to go here - if you don't have a ride right after school, you can stay to get help."
“I found a great school that gives me two diplomas - one for here and one for the whole wide world. Everyone seems really nice, and I’m learning a lot!"

At WIHI there is a continuity between departments, staff, students and parents that is unparalleled in education today and this creates an environment highly supportive of learning and a culture in which striving for success is center stage". - Mr. Pierson, Music Director
"From a social studies standpoint, WIHI is an ideal situation because it allows students of widely varied backgrounds and life experiences to interact and engage with one another on topics that challenge their understanding of the world. As a result, students encounter unfamiliar ideas and beliefs that challenge their own. This leads to greater understanding of opposing views and can help foster an enhanced sense of open-mindedness." Mr. Ezekiel, World Studies & Economics Teacher
