Our family has graduated 5 generations from WHS. I've not had cause to be at the school often, but I can attest to the quality of instruction, through the experience of my children. My time there is too remote to be relevant, but my children were relatively recent. Their reading levels are more than adequate (avid readers even today) and mathematics remarkable. Both are successful tradespersons. They speak well of their positive experience there. One gets out relative to what one puts in.
Just read the other review and you will realize the quality of the school.
Yes it is a good school and the sports is excellent the teachers are mostly caring I have 4 generations of my family that have gradated from here but the biggest problem is the whole county system of Senior Quest this is a huge problem I know students personally that had good grades and droped out due to this.
