Aeries, Schoology and Naviance

Aeries Portal accounts provide parents and students online and timely access to information about attendance, progress reports and reports cards and contact information.  We are hoping to significantly reduce paperwork by maintaining emergency contact information online and making the back-to-school/1st day packet process more convenient and efficient for parents and students.
 
Schoology is an incredible resource for students and parents to stay up-to-date on course assignments and projects, receive notifications from teachers, submit homework, connect with classmates, and access useful resources. With Schoology, you will be able to connect to your classes from any device with an internet connection.
 
Explore college and career options with Naviance. "Strengths Explorer" helps uncover your strengths and talents. "Career Cluster Finder" helps you discover careers suited to your personality and interests. You can even submit college applications and high school transcripts.
 
 

Whitney High App

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Whitney High School has an app! The app is free and designed for both student and parent use. You will find important links and you can link the events calendar directly to your phone calendar. Make sure you accept push notifications so we can send simple reminders and updates from the school directly to your phone. We think that you will find the app useful and we will continue to improve the app to meet both parent and student needs.
