I'm a former student, and I can say that WHHS is like most schools. You get out of it what you put into it. I was near the top of my class, took most offered AP courses, etc, and I was very well prepared for college. It's easily the best high school in the county. I don't mean to say WHHs is perfect mind you, like any school they could be better, perhaps by expanding offerings of advanced courses (they covered the basic social studies areas very well, but as college history major I wish there had been more social studies courses overall) and so forth. The school is also accomplished athletically, with the baseball and softball programs being especially good, though again they'd not be hurt by offering another sport or two. For their athletic prowess, emphasis on athletics is perhaps low, with only football, basketball, and cheerleading/dance getting dedicated class periods. All other sports are purely after school. The site's data is somewhat outdated, the school now serves grades 9-12, for example.
The school is grossly deficient in terms of what they have to offer a learning disabled child. For the most part, they simply push them through the system with no regard for how well academically prepared the young student will or will not be upon graduating.
I graduated from White Hall last year. I am now attending college in another state. White Hall DID NOT prepare me for college. I have never been challenged as I am now. While in high school I didnt have to work for any of my grades ( I was an A & B student). Now that I am in college Im at a loss. I am doing ok but have never had to work this hard in my life. Although there are good teachers and I do love the school I was astounded at how unprepaired I was.
I am a current student at White Hall High School. While the town is small and friendly, the school is always buzzing with drama. The teachers are good some uncaring and not the best as any usual school, but then again you have awesome teachers who I have learned alot from.
I am a former student of WHHS and although I didn't particularly enjoy my high school years, I look back and see that this is a pretty good school. The majority of the teachers are excellent, they help their students out a lot and really care about their students. Especially Mrs. McGrew, Mrs. Mobley, Mr. Bearden, Mrs. Rogers, Mrs. K. Williams, and many others. Our principal, Mr. Mitchell, although tough was a greta principal. I would recommend this school to most everyone in the area. -Whitney Greer-
