West Carroll jr/sr High School is the BEST school in the whole state of Tennessee. I know this because i am a 8th grade student. I think that the oppertunitys at this school. The WC Band is the smallest in the world ,but just because we are small does not mean we don't ROCK!! I am a Flutist in the WC Band. Our football team is exeptionaly good. We have many clubs and teams that is for all ages and everyone enjoys them. The Cafatorium is HUGE and has a stage in the middle and 4 lunch lines. The Janitors keep the school very clean. The floors are washed once a day, not including being swept and waxed. The Parents get on there hands and knees to do anythng for us.
