As a former student of WHS - it has its pros and cons, as any school does. Unfortunately, with Wellsboro's small size, students are often categorized from a young age in regards to level and ability. With any small town, gossip and preferential treatment exist for family, relatives, and friends. Still, while there are teachers who go to work every day for a paycheck, others truly care about each student's ability to grow and learn. Wellsboro is one of the better School Districts, and has stronger academics in the area - especially in comparison to Northern and Southern Tioga School Districts. Finally, WHS provides numerous opportunities to develop any willing student, academically, or not. As someone who participated in three sports, was very active in the music department, was a class and student council officer, and had a 3.9 GPA, I cannot stress the benefits of attending this school.
