White Plains City School District Mission Statement
The mission of the White Plains City School District is to educate and inspire all students, while nurturing their dreams, so they learn continually, think critically, pursue their aspirations and contribute to a diverse and dynamic world.
White Plains High School, located on a beautiful 75-acre campus, offers almost 400 courses to ninth through twelfth graders. The district takes great pride in the school's rich diversity, unique breadth of educational opportunity, impressive facilities and highly qualified staff.
From Advanced Placement courses in all major subjects to participation in the Advanced College Experience (ACE) Program at Westchester Community College, the quality of the school's programs is reflected each year in the honors and awards achieved by individual students, teams and clubs. Extracurricular programs include more than 50 clubs, the literary publication The Roar, and performing arts groups. In addition, the school competitively fields over 45 New York State Section I athletic teams. The school was selected by the U.S. Department of Education as a School of Excellence in l986-87.
