As a stundent at Wellborn High this school means the WORLD to me! I love this school so much! The sports here are really* good!:) The people here are AMAZING and the staff is great! Our principle and vice principle are strict but in a good way! Mr.Carter(principle) is a very nice man and has changed are school dramatically! I love WWHS! GO PANTHERS:)

I love Wellborn High. As a former student I would love to send my children there. Very close knit community and wonderful staff.

I believe that we need a golf team. I am considering moving because of our current sports program. Mr. Whatley came in and strengthened our academics, but our sports program has suffered greatly.

My daughter went to this school, and now my grandchildren attend Wellborn High. There has been an on going problem of students being checked out without ID being checked. I specified that I wanted this done and it still is not done. Anyone can check a student out of school! Wake up Wellborn! We need for our children to be as safe as possible. Step up to the plate!

I am a graduate of W.H.S. Since graduating, I have gone on to graduate from Auburn University and now I am a teacher myself. From an educational perspective, I feel Wellborn does the best with what they have. If I lived in the area, I would be proud for my child to be a Wellborn Panther! There are some things the school could improve on and several of the amazing teachers that worked at WHS have since moved on, but overall, students can definitely recieve a quality education and are offered a variety of activities to participate in.

The teachers at Wellborn do the best with what little funding and participation they get from the Board of Education, and the state government. The problems Wellborn does have (very poor curriculum choices, especially in foreign languages), could easily be fixed if the 'good people of Alabama' would learn that compared to the rest of the country, their school funding is a joke.

This is a great school with a caring faculty. My child graduated from WWHS and is an honor student at one of our state's major universities. Academic preparation here is good, guidance counseling is GREAT, and the fine arts department is one of the best in the area in spite of the fact that athletics tend to rule.

This is a much better school than many people realize. Academic preparation is good, guidance counseling is GREAT, and the fine arts department is probably the best in the area in spite of the fact that athletics tend to rule.

I loved being at W.H.S. At the time all of the teachers were wonderful and very supportive. In the time since I have graduated I have been involved throughout the county in various schools and school activities, and I still have to say that over all, this is still a great school! Many of the schools that I have been in are over crowded and congested, this was never a problem at Wellborn. There also was less of a 'fitting in' problem. MANY of the schools in this area are 'clickie', (Parents, this IS a BIG concern for your children, and it CAN affect them later on in life) Choir was wonderful and Art was one of my favorite classes. There are so many experienced teachers that love to share their knowledge at Wellborn!

Wellborn is a great school to be at we just have some people that take things out of proportion. And everyone knows we have the best baseball coach so our athletics should rise soon!
