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.
