Award Winning Education
Whitko is the School for Your Family
Serving two counties is no small task, but the results are impressive! Ninety-two percent of the students who attend Whitko receive a diploma, and of those who graduate, a large majority go on to receive a degree in higher education. According to Niche.com, WJSHS is currently ranked as the "Best High School in Whitley County." Whitko Community Schools is a recipient of the AP TIP Award, which recognizes schools who offer advanced placement courses, and have a high percentage of students who choose to participate in the coursework and complete these courses with excellence.
We provide 1 to 1 technology for each student and our elementary schools are Common Sense Technology certified, which means your child will learn how to be safe while online. We help them begin good habits now so that they are prepared for the future!
Big Enough to Deliver and Small Enough to Care
We are one of only three public high schools in a six-county area (Whitley, Wabash, Kosciusko, Huntington, Noble, and Allen counties) to achieve back-to-back “A” ratings from the Department of Education. We offer a variety of extracurricular opportunities for students including 18 varsity sports. Whitko's art departments are recognized locally, nationally, and globally as award recipient, and as Wildcats, we pride ourselves on maintaining an outstanding school culture! (Things like drugs, fights, and bullying are very rare within the walls of our buildings).
Aiming Beyond the Classroom
We understand that leaving your child with us each day is a sign of your trust in us. Your child is our priority.
It is our goal to provide top teaching staff, safe learning environments, and to ultimately help your child become a successful life-long learner who will make a positive contribution to the betterment of our collective societies. In November of 2017 Whitko was recognized as one of the TOP 50 SCHOOLS IN THE STATE of Indiana with regard to students actively engaged in dual credit courses. This means Whitko students will have a head start when it comes to achieving their goal of higher edcuation at a college, university or technical school.
Leading the Charge in Technology
Whitko is striving toward a goal to be a 100% Common Sense Technology Certified School in the discipline of Digital Citizenship. Today, both Pierceton Elementary and South Whiltey Elementary have achieved certification and WJSHS is completing the certification process right now!
