Extracurricular programs[edit]

Extracurricular programs include high class concert and marching band, a choir program, a theater arts company, art classes, Spanish (from 7th grade), and athletics. Whitehouse's marching band is known as "The Best Marching Band in East Texas" because of the extravagant performances they put on during hometown football games and their role in the Tyler Rose Parade, Christmas parade, and other area celebrations. Onlookers often mistake the Whitehouse Junior High Band for a high school marching band because of their skill and prestige. Likewise, the Whitehouse High School Band could be mistaken for a College level band. Not only for their musicianship, but their sheer size, which is roughly 270 members strong. This has left the residents of Whitehouse and the surrounding cities eager to view their next performances. The District also is known for its outstanding athletic program, in which, On November 8th, the high school football team became undefeated in regular season play, beating John Tyler High School, led by Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Additionally, the baseball program has reached the UIL State Baseball Tournament twice (2013 and 2016)
