“When I was in the 8th grade, I got mono, and I was always too tired to do anything. My parents and I decided that attending online high school would be the best choice for me.

Haley, a 2013 Honors Graduate, is majoring in Entrepreneurship Studies in college. She explains why she feels so prepared for college level work.
“I was a C student until Whitmore, and then I got straight A’s. The teachers at Whitmore School act like leaders – not bosses. They made me feel like I was part of the team.”
“My experiences at Whitmore School have been very positive. I am a grown adult now, but when I was a teen, I was unmotivated and immature. I didn’t like high school. I didn’t even try. My mom helped me research online high schools and thought this would be the best match for me. I don’t test well and this school was based on Mastery, which works better for me. Working at my own pace works well, especially since I have a full-time job.”

She and her parents felt that Whitmore School would be a good fit and give Arianna access to more adults invested in her education.
