Posted March 10, 2005

This school had the absolute best music director that I've ever known, Vincent Proctor. I loved that teacher and he put out the best band in the western United States, year after year. He could have gone anywhere, taught at universities, but he didn't. He helped prepare students for the future in a way that would matter. He was one most concerned, yet stern teachers that I've ever had and his lessons will forever remain with me. Regardless of what the rest of the report says, White Mountain Jr. High is by far my favorite school out of the fifteen that I have attended. They have awesome teachers, a great tech lab, decent food, and most importantly, they actually teach and educate. Students get into their work and enjoy being in school. It's rare to find a school that can do such anymore. This is one of them.
