I had the pleasure of attending Warner Robins High School while living in Houston county. WRHS nurtured a friendly family atmosphere that makes learning at this school very appealing. Fellow students are willing to go out of the way to help their classmates out. This school is a real gem in the system! Veterans and Hoco may get all the accolades because they have the supposed better demographic student population, but the education I received from the numerous highly trained and qualified teachers is next to none! Don't let the school score dissuade you from this school. No other school prides itself in doing thing the right way more so then WRHS.
I have been disappointed in the extreme with Warner Robins High School (specifically, the 9th grade Rumble Academy). The English teacher said at the open house that they no longer teach spelling, "because computers do that these days." Teachers were unwilling to work with us (parents) when our girls fell behind; letting us know the assignments so we could work with the kids was too much trouble. There is no math textbook; there is an online textbook, but they don't use it, "because it isn't very good." The guidance counselor told us we were overreacting, that of her 500 9th grade students, 50% were failing or close to failing. When we asked for our girls to be tested for dyslexia since they have clear symptoms and seem to need help learning memory tricks to master high school, they said no, that it was an 18-month process to be considered for testing.
It is unsafe at this school. Many kids get bullied and beat up yet administration does nothing about it. I want to learn in a safe environment. My family is moving this year, thank God! Also some of the teachers are really backward. My English teacher makes everyone use pens to write, so i did but I make a lot of mistakes that I have to scratch out (she takes points off for scratching things out which I cannot erase!) I do better when I can type my papers on my laptop. I think they should focus on writing not what implement a student uses to write with!
I am a freshmen at WRHS. Unfortunately, I will be going to HOCO next year, and Veteran's the next. WRHS is so far the best school that I have ever been to. There are amazing people there, but, at the same time, we have our share of bad students and drama. Overall, I have had an amazing experience here at WRHS. And I basically owe it all to my wonderful biology teacher, Ms.Fincher. I am not downong any other schools, but WRHS is a great place to be.
I am a Honors' student and also whent to the middel and elmentery schools in this area. I think the people are okay like any other school really because people are people. I like my honors teacher because they are very leanient and let us express our selves. Which is VERY important. We have a new principle but I do not know him to well because he has only been hear for two years. Some people like him and other people, well I do not want to say because I do not know if the bad things they say are really true or not. I keep my nose in my busness ONLY that way nothing bad happens. That is the way all good students should be. Ignore the things unless they effect you directly. Anyway, my favorite class is History and English. Which I want to go back and teach here!!
I have 2 children currently attending WRHS. one is in 12th grade theother 10th. This is not the only HS my 12th grader has attended so I have a basis for comparison to other schools, and WRHS just doesn't stack up. There is no leadership at the top. Teachers are weak educators and some that my kids have are truley ill prepared to be in the classroom. I am just glad that when my next child is ready for HS the new one will be open, I just keep my fingers crossed that it won't be a giant mess.
I have a daughter that is a sophmore at WRHS right now. She is doing very well and I have been pleased with her education here. She is very involved in JROTC and swimming. She is well rounded, taking AP and advanced classes. I believe she is being well prepared for her college career. She is disciplined I believe due to the excellent instructors in the JROTC program. She is developing wonderful study habits. I have been pleased with her education from PreK to high school in houston county. there are always issues, but they are usually resolved to the best of all parties involved in the parents and staff work together for the betterment of the child's education.
I am a parent who has had two children graduate from WRHS. I'll let you judge whether this school is good based on the fact that my eldest child has completed a four year pre-med degree in three years with a 4.0 GPA, and my second child is enrolled in a very prestigious program at an elite academy. I think Warner Robins high has done a pretty good job educating my children.
