School History

Formal education first began in Whiteland when the first school house was built in 1869. That school house served as the town's school until 1957 when a new high school was built. The Class of 1958 was the first to graduate from the new Whiteland High School at that time. Eight years later, in 1965, Clark High School (what is now present day Clark Elementary School) and Whiteland High School united to form one school corporation and Whiteland Community High School was then established.
