No school is perfect but I am completely happy with the education my daughter is getting at WHS. I firmly believe an education is every bit as much as the student's and parent's responsibility as it is the school and teachers'. All of my daughter's teachers are attentive to her when she has questions and open to discussion when I do. The environment in the school is no worse than any large school. There are drugs prevalent like any school and situations where my daughter has to make moral choices. I can only hope I am raising her right and she makes the right choices. That's on us as parents, not the school. The athletic programs are top notch and the district puts a lot of time, effort, and money into maintaining the buildings and grounds.

I couldn't agree more with the other comments made here!! The staff is COMPLETELY lacking when it comes to pushing kids to reach any kind of potential!! I watch my very intelligent daughter go from a 3.98GPA to a 2.5GPA in her freshman year after struggling with 2 of her classes. WE BEGGED THE SCHOOL AND TEACHERS TO TAKE ACTION AND HELP HER!! The reply we got was "well don't worry she has a 62% D-, so she will still pass as long as she holds a 60% or higher" NO CONCERN at all for her learning the material - just as long as they can pass her - that's all they cared about - not why she was struggling, not what might be happening that was causing this issue - NOTHING!!! If we could afford to move or get her into ANY other school we would, but finances prevent us from doing that. DON"T MOVE to Warrenton, MO if you have kids of school age because the elementary schools are not any better!!

If I could rate this high school lower than 1 star, I would. I currently have two children enrolled in this high school, and we are moving to put them into a better school. Both of my kids have been bullied at school, both report being exposed to drugs on a daily basis, and neither child is being encouraged to perform, just pass. This past winter we had multiple snow days, and to get them made up, the superintendent sent out a survey to the parents asking if their child would be able to attend a possible make up day. That is a perfect example of the total lack of leadership in this school. This school represents little more than teenager daycare. I can count on one hand the number of teachers that have EVER expressed any interest in the well being of either of my children or their academic success. The lack of recent rating is a result of most current students or recent graduates have had little or NO English composition training. I recommend finding another school for you high school aged children.

I have just recently transfered to WHS from several other schools, and I believe this is the best school I have ever been to. The teachers actually care, and try to understand you, what you know, & what areas you may need assistance in. The students are friendlier as well, no where near as many drugs, fights, or drama as any of the other schools I have attended. It's actually safe. (Parents with girls: the boys are actually polite! they're souther-type gentleman.) This school showed me the importance of graduation, which I have never planned to graduate untill I moved here. It's a small town, with a great school. WHS is was a life~changing experience for me.

I have 6 children, 3 of which are in this school. There are way too many problems to list. There have been multiple times that I have tried to contact either teachers or administrators, and have had no results. I leave multiple messages and get no return calls. The quailty of teachers is below average. All of my children have struggled in one class or another, and the teachers are unwilling to help them. Overall I am very dissatisfied with this school. We moved to this school district because we were told that it was excellent. Boy, did we learn the hard way! As soon as our oldest 3 graduate, we will be long gone. I do not see the point in paying for sub-standard education. We will move to a school district that values it's students and would like to see them become a productive assett to society.

My kids have enjoyed WHS. The teachers are friendly, although some lack knowledge of their subject area. The math and science departments are excellent, but English classes could be better.

At best this school is average. Concerning parental involvement; they attend sporting events, I am not sure I consider that 'being invovled.' Although my child is considered above average accademically, I don't see her working to her potential nor do I notice teachers expecting her to do so. Spelling and Grammar are NON ISSUES in written work, which I find completely unacceptable. I believe the schools across the US need to get back to the basics and teach our students the essentials and not focus so much on HOW to take tests. If the material they need to know is taught, the test taking will be a breeze.

above average education. basic athletics, good parental involvement. the school was built for 500 students and currently is at 950, additions are being made currently to add 19 additional classrooms. as a teacher at this school, i find the students for the majority work hard and are a joy to be around.
