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 is also one of the schools participating in the Early College Alliance program.
Whitmore Lake High School moved to a new building for the commencement of classes in fall of 2006.
Change to Semesters
At the beginning of the 2012 school year, in order to save money, Whitmore Lake High School decided to go to semesters. This resulted in an extra class period, which means shorter class hours.
These class offerings are for the 2010-2011 school year.
- Physical Education
- BFS (Bigger Faster Stronger) Readiness, BFS, Swimming, Health, Individual Sports, Team Sports, Outdoor Recreation Sports
- Other Electives
- Yearbook, Technology Essentials, Study Skills, RCTC (Regional Career Technical Center)
The school supports a variety of athletic teams. One of the more successful teams at WLHS has 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 2000s (decade).
Whitmore Lake is a member of the Tri-County Conference, which includes sports teams from Whiteford, Summerfield, Morenci, Sand Creek, Clinton, Britton, Adrian Madison, and Deerfield. The 2007-2008 season will see the addition of Clinton to the conference.
