Welcome to Whitehall-Yearling High School

WYHS is a school that is working very hard to become the best school for all of our students. We are a learning community of over nine hundred students, staff, and administrators who are all working toward the goal, “ to provide opportunities for success through a shared commitment to excellence.” This is our mission. All of us at WYHS are working diligently toward this goal.

We provide many opportunities for students to get involved in community service through our Key Club and through our successful Senior Service Projects. In addition we have many students and staff who are involved in a variety of projects that help improve the quality of life for members of our school community and the broader community of Whitehall. Each year for example we sponsor a food drive that provides large quantities of food for needy members of the Whitehall community.

At WYHS students participate in a wide variety of athletic activities that help them stay healthy in mind and body. These activities are well attended by the Whitehall Community which is very supportive of WYHS students.

Our faculty is well trained and works to help children fulfill their potential. All of our staff engage in regular professional development and many further their education in order to be better prepared to teach our students.

At a time when every young person faces the prospect of an increasingly complex world of work WYHS is establishing programs that will prepare our students to make positive contributions and improve their prospects of entering jobs that are fulfilling in all areas of their lives.

During the past year we have made a number of changes to the physical plant at the high school designed to make it a more attractive place to work in and a place that makes learning more efficient. In order to keep up with the technology that is driving the future we have added a number of new computer labs and have upgraded the equipment to make it easier for our students to develop these most important skills.

The students, staff, and administration of Whitehall-Yearling High School welcome the participation of parents and members of the community in helping us provide a high quality education for the young people of Whitehall. Our doors are open to your visits and our minds are open to your suggestions and your ideas.
