A multicultural teen who wants a really good education but doesn't want an insane amount of pressure (unless, of course, you decide to take an infamously hard AP course like Chem, in which case good luck). There's also a fair amount of people who aren't interested in college and would like to work right out of school, and I like that the school doesn't shame them for that; rather, they make programs available for them so they can perfect their skills and get very good jobs upon graduating.

A typical Whitman student has very diverse interests, which will only expand during their four years at Whitman, and a very busy schedule. For instance, a typical student might spend eighth period talking to Mr. Pipolo, the AP literature teacher, about Franz Kafka's view on the effects of society on one's humanity, but once school ends, they may have to go to the yearbook meeting in order to pick up a camera to take pictures for the school yearbook. Then, they may swing through the open gate on the side of the school to pick up a bite to eat from Dunkin Donuts and head to their tennis match. Afterwards they head to marching band practice, only to find themselves home at 10 pm, still with homework to do. The typical Whitman student is incredibly driven and involved in everything the school has to offer.

Whitman students are fairly diverse, so it would be difficult to find a prototype. But what sets Whitman kids apart from those from other schools is their drive to succeed academically and their welcoming, tolerant attitude towards newcomers and new ideas.
