<span class="mw-page-title-main">Whitney High School (Toledo, Ohio)</span> Former girls vocational public high school in Toledo, Ohio

Harriet Whitney High School was a girls vocational public high school in Toledo, Ohio from 1939 to June 1991. It served the entire city and was part of the Toledo Public School District. In 1959 the school became joint-operational with Macomber High School, an all-boys vocational school located next door, and the two buildings came to be known as Macomber-Whitney. Despite the fact that they shared an urban campus and some operational efficiencies, the two schools were completely separate in faculties, enrollments, and curriculum until the 1973-1974 school year. In the spring of 1972, an assembly was held for Macomber sophomores. They were told that they could major in one of several programs offered at Whitney, taking core courses at Whitney and other courses required for graduation at Macomber. The available programs included Distributive Education, Business Technology, Marketing, and Data Processing. Some 50 boys signed up. The only change from the assembly announcement was that the boys were transferred completely to Whitney. While the faculty and staff at Whitney had to make some adjustments to accommodate the boys, the program change worked well. The boys did have to undergo some questions from peers, some of whom didn't believe they actually attended Whitney (the most common response was "you mean, Whitmer?"—Whitmer being another co-ed high school in the metro Toledo area. And, even after the former Macomber boys were completely and fully registered as Whitney students, the school newspaper and the yearbook kept their original names from when Whitney was a girls-only school.
