Carmi-White County High School Reviews

I absolutely love my high school! There is such a great atmosphere that is so welcoming. We have the best principal a school could ask for, along with fantastic staff. They're all so concerned about their students and lead their lives as positive role models for all around them. I know when I am preparing to come to school, I will always walk in to staff with smiles on their faces and my principal asking me how I'm doing that day. It's so comforting and something I will miss so much when I head off to college next year!
Carmi- White County High School has been my home for the past 3 years. I possess a great sense of pride in my small town school. Carmi- White County High School provides a community for its students by binding our town together. My school has done a wonderful job of embracing our rural way of life. The students are able to connect with the teachers on a level that many urban kids are incapable of experiencing. Our Bulldog family is closely-knitted. We rise to tragedy and heartbreak by mourning by each others' sides. However, with any school system, flaws exist. Academically, Carmi- White County High School is not as advanced as other schools in better-funded cities. The school does not offer any Advanced Placement courses. The GPA is also not weighed. While our options are limited, Carmi- White County High School has pushed to provide education to every youth in my community.
CWCHS has always tried hard from administrators to teachers to ensure my success not only in school but also in life. It is a small school with small classes ( usually around 20 but I have taken a class with only 4 other people) where the teachers want to see you do well. It is a safe and welcoming environment with most people in the school generally getting along. The school inspires a lot of spirit and pride around campus. There isn't a lot that I would change about the school but I do wish it had a class that taught better sex education. I do understand, however, that it is a small school and probably doesn't have the funding that a larger school would have.
