Whitmore Lake High School

Straddling the border of Washtenaw and Livingston Counties in Southeast Michigan, Whitmore Lake High School is the only high school in the Whitmore Lake Public School District. The district is located in the census-designated place also known as Whitmore Lake. Enrollment in the 9th through 12th grade high school is approximately 450 students. The school's colors are red and white, and their mascot is the Trojans.

Whitmore Lake High School moved to a new building for the commencement of classes in fall of 2006.

Academics

Change to Trimesters

Along with the move to the new high school building, Whitmore Lake High School has also switched from a more traditional two semester school year to trimesters. This allows students to reduce their class load from seven classes per day to only five while actually increasing the total number of classes they are able to take. In the old two semester system, students took seven classes per semester, for a total of 14 credits a year. In trimesters, each student takes five classes per trimester, for a total of 15 credits a year. In addition, classes are 70 minutes long instead of the previous 46 minutes.

Course Offerings

These class offerings are for the 2006-2007 school year.

Athletics

The school supports a variety of athletic teams. One of the more successful teams at WLHS has arguably been the only team to win state championships: the 1995 and 1996 girls' cross country teams. The competitive cheer team has made it to the state finals repeatedly in their history, and the football team has enjoyed berths in the state playoffs throughout the early naughts.

Whitmore Lake is a member of the Tri-County Conference, which includes sports teams from Whiteford, Summerfield, Morenci, Sand Creek, Britton, Adrian Madison, and Deerfield. The 2007-2008 season will see the addition of Clinton to the conference.
