Also I am not writing this because I am sore about the experience, but simply because I do not want others to have the same low budget education I was stuck with, I've finally gotten my life back on track with much hard work and perseverance. But I am still behind and have much catching up to do especially knowing that I will have a difficult time furthering my education due to the fact that I was basically thrown from middle school, straight to college with no real help in between. I simply hope that others will take these words to heart and desire more for your future or your children's future and education.

Unless this person that just posted on 8-21-09 is a old graduate, I don't think they looked hard enough. My daughter is a junior at WCHS and is taking two college courses at Motlow. They strategically place it on the back side of the high school and students can walk there. She will graduate with a year of college behind her. I have asked and all credits should transfer to most colleges. If they don't I know of someone else that was able to do online courses for the college she would be attending after she graduates. My daughter has also had honors of AP classes since 9th grade. Well actually she took Algebra 1 in 8th grade for a high school credit. I don't think this school is perfect, the administration could handle theirselves better and not single out kids that they suspect of doing wrong, but they have improved

I graduated from White County High thinking that I was prepared for college. However, I quickly learned that I was wrong. This school has no advanced placement courses nor do they offer courses that receive college credit. You know that you went to a low rate school when you don't know what an AP (advanced placement) course is. Most of the teachers are good but there are a few that shouldn't be allowed to teach or even be in the education field. I recently heard that the administration is taking away senior privilege for all incoming freshmen and those thereafter.Senior privilege is what every student looks forward to (besides graduation). Taking this away from students who work hard is a slap in the face. I also had a problem with the way the school handled religion.Christians are not the only ones that have the right to freedom of religion.

I used to attend White County High,but then I transferred schools due to a move. My new high school was not as good as WCHS. My new school was also twice the size of WCHS. I felt that I wasn't learning as much as I did at WCHS adn the students at WCHS are alot nicer than the ones at my new school.

I attended WCHS and now my daughter and my brother both go. It is a great school. The principal and the rest of the administration are excellent. My daughter just commented that she 'feels very safe' in light of recent events ( Virginia Tech) The teachers are top notch. My husband and I are proud to be graduates and we are proud to say our daughter is a White County Warrior.

The variety of arts and sports has grown ten-fold since I was in school in White County. My children have been in schools from Atlanta to Minneapolis and I am, by far, most pleased with the safety, environment, educational leadership and population in the White County area. VERY glad we moved back!
