    "There is a huge variety of classes! In every subject! There are just as many math, science, English, social science classes as there are art, music, and dance/PE classes. Everyone has the opportunity to explore their interests. We do have required courses but once you reach 11th/12th grade, (for kids who came in 7th grade its 10th/11/12th grade), you get the freedom to choose the classes you wanna take. For example we require 3 years of social science. Everyone takes World and then U.S History, but students can choose the third whether it be Law, Psych, Economics, etc. and they can go beyond those 3 years. In terms of opting out of classes, its very rare. Sometimes juniors and seniors get opted out of their gym requirement, but they need to have a legit reason."

    "Most of the classes at Whitney are very academically challenging. Aside from memorization, we are required to apply our knowledge to real-world issues, helping us understand why we need such knowledge. The teachers are very knowledgeable and passionate about what they teach, making class more interesting. The workload can be overwhelming at times, especially if you take AP classes, but if things ever get too overwhelming, counselors are always open to helping you find a solution."

    "The work we have at our school is quite overwhelming, but we manage. We definitely learn a lot out of our classes."
