In regards to WHS being concerned solely with sports programs, I believe the large and active FFA, drama, speech & debate and other organizations and activities debunk that myth. All teachers were willing to help a student if they were willing to work and ask for help. I have a suspicion the disgruntled parents giving poor ratings weren't involved in their (not there!) child's education and then were disappointed when the teachers couldn't suddenly provide enough extra credit or remedial support for their child when they found out a week before graduation they were failing.

The school is all about sports not the kids that really need extra help. My daughter was made fun of and no one cared. She needed help in some of her classes and asked her teachers but they said she would have to just do what she could and take the grade. She was falling behind and the school was behind on even sending a notice to me to let me know til it was to late. Thanks she failed. Alot of the students judge you before they even know you. As do the teachers. Unless you have a certain last name forget getting any help.

Some of the teachers there are amazing and really try to help students achieve as high as they can. However, the administration lacks academic goals and the Principal seems to believe that the only way to learn is to stay in a classroom. The school's main focus appears to be on sports and not academics. The school does not encourage students to explore options outside the state, field trips, or national scholarships. People tend to live in their own little bubble.

Beware parents! Worland high school has very prejudice teachers who go out of their way to discriminate and negatively influence their students in numerous ways. I know this from direct personal experience of 4 years attending there. What teachers go out of their way to lower their students grades???Worland High school.

This School has A great student sport, academic, and Vocational program. The teachers are caring and helpfull, and always willing to assist those students in need in their class room. Besides that they help to exell the students that are ahead with advanced programs to challange students.
