The School is kind and greets you when your at the door. I think that all schools should follow in their footsteps.

i went to this school and kids are not treated equally it's about who you know and if you play a sport. there are good teachers and bad teacher but every school has that problem i can say that the counsler is well liked by some while hated by others support is offered to those of higher standards and not those with low ones but it can be a great school if your child has the right teachers

I enrolled my niece in WCHS last year and found the school to be the best. The teachers are always willing to help with any problem that the student is having. They always answered my emails and were very professional and friendly. The front office staff are very professional, friendly, and always willing to help. I really like the way that they lock the doors and keep our children safe during school hours. The classes are small but that gives the students more individualized help. The teachers have a teaching certificate the same as teachers from other schools and I think they are very capable of teaching our kids. As far as this county being poor well you don't need to be rich to learn or teach and our county has something far better than money it is rich in spirit. Our teachers care about our kids.

the staff is not helpful, friendly, or professional at the office. some of the teachers are ok but the education is limited. some teachers have the mentality of a gossipy teenager. its a small poor town and taking that into consideration it fits its unfortunate surroundings. schools in the suburbs offer better education due to the teachers being more educated and trains..more programs less social prejudice. etc.

Wolfe Co. Schools are very small. Therefore children get more individual attention. However since Wlofe Co. itself is soooo small children find nothing to do better then drugs. I used to attend Wolfe Co. schools until i recently moved. I loved it. However i had a best friend whose mother was a teacher. Many kids are taunted there. There isnt a football team simply because people wont get out ant start one. All you need is money for uniforms. You can make everything else happen slowly. We have a field somewhat. But overall i love the schools. Thats were the kids i grew up are they're family. I miss it and would move back....but there are no jobs in wolfe county for teenagers. Wheras in winchester almost every teenager has a job. There are better opportunites else where. When i moved work in other schools was harder.

I am a past student who thinks WCHS is great. I am still recieving help from teachers and staff whenever i need it. I was prepared socially and do not place my college life on the those in the school system. It is a small town, poor poeple live there, students are getting eduacated as the best they can be do the location of the school.

I was born and raised in Wolfe County and went to Wolfe County schools myself. I later sent both of my daughters there upon returning to Wolfe County when they were young. I earned my Master's degree without any struggle academically or socially. I was taught well and provided superior guidance from a very personable staff and group of teachers offering programs including Spanish, Latin and Creative writing. My daughters both have gone on to college and graduated. One recieved a full scholarship to an out of state private college based on her academic background, superior leadership and ACT scores. She graduated at the top of her class. Wolfe County Schools are small, rural, and quaint but deliver the highest and most valuable education our kids could get in any school anywhere. They recieved this education with both love and pride given to them by a high caliber of wonderful teachers.

I have had two children go to this school, I have been there many times and was very involved with the school and I found it to be not be a very fair school for many children, It was alot in who you knew and if your child played sports, which mine did, but I saw alot of unfair things there.

I am not a parent yet, but I was a student there and I would say to the parents that are checking this school out for their child/children, it is a very nice school and the staff are good with the students.
