I graduated from White Station in 2003. I was disappointed in the education I got there. Sure, the optional program is great, but the standard classes are depressing. Most students in the class do not wish to learn, so the teacher must bring the curriculum down to their level, causing those who want to learn at a normal pace to become bored in their classes. Also, the leadership is lacking, but so does the Board of Education itself. Frankly, when I have children, I am living in a Shelby County School district.
I have had one student graduate from White Station, another who is a sophomore. I believe that the Honors program is challenging and prepares a HS student well for college. Having classes with intellectual peers is an important aspect of the program that is often overlooked. The faculty members, for the most part,are very interested in stimulating the students,and provide excellent mentoring and leadership.The kids are very proud that they attend this school, well know for it's academics locally as well as nationally.When it's time to apply for college, a good GPA from the honors program means something. I cannot comment on the Standard program.
Hello, I am a student starting my fourth year at White Station in the fall. I can honestly say that I could not imagine going to a different school and having the same experience. Although White Station has its faults, I have such incredible pride in my school. And many of the other students at White Station share this same pride. The teachers and administration are very supportive of the students. I have always felt like I could go to any of my teachers and ask for extra help. Therefore, it upsets me to read this negative comment about the school that I love so much and speak so favorably of everywhere that I go. Not only does this person give my school undeserved criticism, but he/she does not offer any possible reasoning behind the comments. White Station is a wonderful school and is known throughout the city as one of the top schools, public and private, in the city of Memphis. Thank you for your time. Amelia Thompson
I purchased a home to be in this district. This was a hugh mistake. I now have it up for sale to pull my child out of this school. I would encourage any parent to home school before they send their children to this school.
