Betty did her schooling at Beverly Hills Unified School District in Beverly Hills and at Beverly Hills High School. While Betty White was attending high school, She became extremely passionate about the great outdoors.

Instead, She became an avid writer and eventually created a play in which she acted the lead role for her high school drama group. Betty White graduated from high school in 1939.
