Principal's Page

Greetings Oilers!

Jon Chance

It brings me great pleasure to have been chosen to serve as principal at Whiting High School. I began my career in education here at WHS in 2012, and it is rewarding to be back and a part of a school with a proud tradition of providing students with high quality educational opportunities. Prior to returning to the School City of Whiting, I served as a teacher, coach, club sponsor, mentor teacher, team leader, and most recently as Assistant Principal.

Our team here at WHS is highly qualified and dedicated to preparing each student for a successful career beyond our doors. We will strive to meet the daily challenges of increasing student achievement while emphasizing continuous growth for everyone here in our building. It is our goal to work as a team to build a rigorous and relevant curriculum that allows for real-world connections while also building relationships with our students. We will work to keep the community informed of the exciting things we have going on at WHS.

As principal here at WHS, it is important that anyone who steps through our doors feels welcome. A positive attitude allows for a positive environment, which will enable our team to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a fun, positive, and nurturing environment. I will work hard to continue this legacy of success, and I look forward to working with you to help our students grow educationally and personally.

Please be sure to visit our website throughout the school year for up-to-date information on school activities, educational resources, contact information for our faculty, and other valuable details. My door is open, and I am eager to help in any way that I can.
