You want to go to a good school......PLEASE don't come to Ware Shoals High School. I thought when I got to Ware shoals High, I was going to have a good time making friends and befriending teachers. I had the making friends parts down but this staff is something else. All they do is pick favorite students and then they pretty much ignore rest and don't even get me started on the principle Mr. Paul Anderson. He is a terrible principle and i not just saying that because I am a student and no student likes school. I'm saying it because he never punish the people he likes and he all has something smart to say to students even though we try and talk to him like a normal person. I have never seen a bad principle till I step through the doors Ware Shoals High School and seen Mr. Paul Anderson. he doesn't care about the safety of his students. just last year, two young males was about to fight out side in front of the school just as school was letting out and I sat there and told him they were and all he did was nothing. Then when they starting fighting, he just stood their for like 30 seconds. Then he walked over their so lazy like. So.. PLEASE don't bring your child here, they don't care

Mr. Paul Anderson is the reason that I work at Ware Shoals High School. He is a teacher's principal and supports us in every way. He does a remarkable job with the limited resources that he is proved by the state. Congratulations Mr. Anderson for a job well done and thank you for your continued hard work. We appreciate you.

This is the school that I graduated from so I can say from experience that this school did not prepare me for college in any form or fashion. The only thing that prepared me was one teacher there who had her stuff straight. This school is not safe, I have seen many people walk in and out of there with no visitor badges, anyone could just walk in and do whatever they wanted to. This school has had a lot of public problems in the past but that does not excuse the deterioration of the school. The school is old and historic, and I''m positive that it has seen better days.

This school does not offer any form of safety for the students. Many students are harrassed and nothing is done to the bully when they are reported to the principal. Students at the junior high run that school, the teachers have no control at all. Walk into the junior high at any time and you see kids playing in the halls because the teachers can't do anything with them and they send them out of class. The 7th and 8th grade students are not held accountable for anything, not even grades!

The school does not have an orderly, consitant, and fair disciple policy in effect. The students rule the school (and they know it). There are many students who are afraid to attend this school because of the problems.

There are alot of issues that take place in this school that are overlooked and need immediate attention, while the ones the attention is focused on is a little overated. There seems to be a power struggle for inprovements and the school is failing its students by not not improving this school and meeting the current likeness of schools in this division. I also beleive there is an unusual allowance or tolerance for issues that have caused a crackdown on many schools across the nation. It'sa time Ware Shoals Highand Junior (they are combined ) get a complete and severe checkup and be made to comply with standards that ensure the learning and safety of the children attending here are met and that, new focuses on not average but higher acheivements are met by all, students, parents, faculty and staff.
