Most of the teachers (esp. 5th grade teachers) need to retire!! They act like they hate children, hate to be at work, and hate to TEACH! I have 2 in middle school, one in high school and one in the elementary school. If ONLY the WCHS teachers could be like the Elementary teachers, then it would be GREAT! Some of the high school teachers DO NOT even TEACH, they just sit at their desk and expect the kids to READ the chapter and then may get a study guide> They DO NOT get up in the front of the class and TEACH. And all these kids that have always been A-B Honor Roll are now getting C's & D's! HELLO! Bad grades of almost the whole grade, esp.out of A-B students is a reflection on the teacher. If most of your kids are failing then obviously YOU ARE NOT DOING YOUR JOB! I am not complaining about ALL the WCHS teachers, because there "some" that are great! I graduated from WCHS and it's just not like it used to be. When I was in school, the teachers wanted to be there and were true teachers who loved kids and their job. But, today,MY KIDS HATE SCHOOL and that is just SAD!!!

Many of the teachers need to retire. Teaching methods are outdated and the teachers act bored or annoyed at having to be there. Children are treated according to their last name or their parents previous performance in school. Too political.

This school use to be an amazing school that every kid loves to go to. Now i hear my kids and his friends talk of how they dread it. The school has taken so many fun activites out. Yes I understand that school is about education but I graduated from WCHS and im proud of it and I learnt so much from there and still had my fun times. Memories come from school as many of my did and i want my kids to have the same memories. Homecoming has always been about dressing p and decorating our halls to show our school spirit why stop it? It is a tradtion that shouldn't be taken away. I agree with many parents that the teacher are very hard on the children on where they came from to choose who to like or not. Thats not right at all.

I have one child that has graduated, one graduating this year and one in a few years. WCHS has grown very much in the last year and I attribute that to our new principal Rhonda Wynn. The previous principal retired after many years of service. While I enjoyed the previous administration, I am thrilled with Mrs. Wynn and her enthusiasm to bring WCHS to the next level. Her desire to increase parent involvement and to provide more opportunities to our students is refreshing. The teachers at WCHS are great and I would like to put special emphasis on our advanced math instructor Spain Morris. Her teaching techniques have definitely made a significant positive difference on my oldest son's college math experience. He attributes his success to Mrs. Morris. His outstanding college GPA speaks loads for the other teachers as well. As a team, WCHS is giving us a bright future.

I do not like the fact that some of the teachers do not get to know your child before they start judging them. Some of them do not even know your child and will accuse them of things and pick on them for no reason.

This school still has the (pick)problem. Either the teachers like you are not. Judged by past family members or who they know you are related too. This is so unfair to the child who wants too learn. We need instruction back in our classes. Stop all the weekly fundraising. Not all are bad teachers but so many are.

The 5th grade teachers give alot of homework some nights. They have our children approximately 8 Hours a day , they shouldn't have that much to do a night. Futhermore there are no sports for them to do.
