Pretty good school, but needs to rid itself of the block scheduling and do something about the band students who walk around like they own the school, and are constantly disrespectful towards teachers and fellow students. The district should also rid itself of the Superintendent, who has done nothing during his long tenure at the school.
I had a child who went to this school. After many discussions with both the principle and the guidance councelor we removed our child from this school. Very long story short....There is no control and clear direction at this school. While we did like the elementary grades and found the middle school acceptable, the high school is lacking in solid guidance. My child went from barely passing grades to High Honors once we moved.
This school is far better than it was several years ago. Discipline, while always an issue, has stepped up considerably recently, and Mr. Butler and Mr. Clingerman run a very tight ship. The teachers are very good too, and most are willing to help in any way they can. Do they have the bullies and incompetent teachers? Yes, but they're far and few between. I'm very glad that I'll be a WHS graduate this year.
