Teachers and administrators work hard to ensure the education of each student. Discipline is strict and rules are enforced. Parents with the complaints usually have the children who break the rules.

There are serious problems with the administration at WSHS. The district doesn't seem to care or is not willing to fix the problems. Really disturbing rumors about the principal are whispered by parents, students and even teachers. Some people say this is where they send their problem administrators to hide them.
