Not good

The school isn’t aware on how to deal with the issues it faces… instead of wondering why children are leaving classes and school early, the school chooses to send out a teacher 20 minutes prior to the bell to prevent anyone leaving rather than finding the very prominent issue within itself. Every single teacher is different, and the school often prioritises uniform items such as socks and thermals over class time. From experience, I’ve spent 2 hours in a classroom in one day sitting instead of studying due to the colour of my socks. Education is okay if you can deal with the school long enough.

not for the students

i left a well mannered , organised school too attend whhs and may i say i am disgusted i did not last long due to how rubbish the school is

the teachers and students are so disrespectful , the principal is good but he profits millions for a school that should be shut down .

slack at communication with students , poor disiplinary actions

almost like a jail for rangatahi i say rangitahi because this school is racist towards there coloured or more derelected students .

Not on my list...

Went to this school as a kid. Tons of bullies and teacher favoritism going on. Dean's at the time were useless, no help. If you weren't good looking. You struggled. If you weren't smart. You struggled. Only a few teachers went the distance to help students without judgement.

Awesome place

Awesome school awesome awesome teachers, only downside is a small proportion of the population which misbehaves and generally brings down the culture of the school

Poor assistant

If you’re white, the school is perfect for you. But if you’re any other ethnicity... it’s hard. Real hard...

Great Teachers, Students arent well behaved.

The teachers are great! But the students, not so much. WHHS has some pretty bad behaved kids in it, but not much bullying happens, just disobedience to the teachers and the dress code, and overall just the Principle in general.

Love this school

Very epic very cool very epix and it kinda sounds pretty cool and it doesn't have a lot of potential for the middle class
