Not 'everyone' is going to agree that WCHS is excellent -nor any other school for that matter. However, fom what I have seen (results)--this school is excellent. They are achieving more with their Native students than 'majority' schools. Down the road for example at BHS--with a population of close to 50%--they fail to present opportunity to these talented students, including the Hispanic population which is right about 50% as well. BHS ignores--the diversity, the language, the culture each of its students hold. Unless you are a committed--get to the books student--No you probably would not like the school--because they test you, they push you hard in academics, and above all expect excellence... but they also believe in you and remind you to believe in yourself as well--to do it! This is excellence is My book.
as an student here at whcs, its an ok school. but it has a awesome early college studies, and from what i know we beat jemez valley at the (A.Y.P) even thought its a small school theres no drama like the valley!....and the teachers actually know how to teach too!...
