This school is good for average children with average needs; the percentage of graduates of this school that complete college is less than 15%, which is disturbing. We left early in my daughter's college career, and were fortunate enough to leave NC and it's deplorable education program. She was terribly behind her peers and it took a year to catch up, and this was an honors student at WHHS. THe state we are in now requires all graduates to take the ACT, yet students at WHHS are not even encouraged to take it. Which could indicate why their college completions rates are so low; they don't encourage higher education. This school is average on a great day, on an average day, it's a waste of time.

This school is amazing. I've been here since my freshman year, and before that I went to the middle school. I only got to spend 2-3 weeks of my senior year here before I got forced to move to South Carolina, where the schools aren't as strict as they should be. Overall, Western Harnett High has taught me so much over the 3 years I attended. I am most definitely going back as soon as I get the chance. The teachers are amazing and will take the time out to help you if you ask.

I graduated in 2004. I was given the opportunity to be taught by excellent teachers such as Mrs. Blake, Mrs.Castle, Mrs.Dugger, Mrs.Mac, and other teachers that no longer work there. I also played football and was coached by great men such as Coach Wyrick, Coach Matt, and Coach Castle. While there were occasional teachers that I believe shouldn't have been teaching, for the most part all my teachers were great and greatly contributed to my acceptance into UNC-Chapel Hill.

I was a member of this school. I ran cross country and the teachers that I had where great. I graduated 2001. Coach Mann was a great teacher and mentor. I will always recommened this school to anyone moving to that area. I am in the military now and doing great. Thanks Western Harnett High School for your great work. I will visit again.

All three of my children attended WHHS. My daughters have both graduated and my son still attends. We are a military family and have attended schools in many places around the U.S. and the world. I am impressed by the curiculum WHHS has to offer and how welcome my children felt when we moved here during the middle of a school year. I am more impressed with the changes made since the new principal took over last year. It is a really positive school now and an enjoyable place to visit and to volunteer!

Moved from Cumberland County to Harnett County to have children in better school district. First day home, my child was giving wonderful reports on everything from the teachers to the kids and the food at the cafeteria. I am very thankful to Mr. Sutter who is a wonderful teacher, and though some say Band is not important, it has changed my daughter's life to be in Marching Band. They really care about the welfare of each student individually. Thanks.
