Washington County Schools have faculty and staff that aim to bring out the best in every student.. At times this is difficult, especially when funding is limited and student aides are often non-existent. In spite of , this school system maintains resiliency and the ability to succeed despise opposition. Its what makes WCHS a great school.. Go Bulldogs!

I liked the administration, I liked the environment. Everyone there was treated like family. If you needed help all you had to do was ask. No one was treated wrongly. If you like being involved in not only your school but also the community, there are a lot of clubs you can join. For women sports, there is softball, basketball, volleyball, soccer, track, golf and cheer. For the men sports, there is football, basketball, baseball, golf, and soccer. We also have 4-h, Ag National honor society, student council and home ec. We offer volunteer hours as well. Homecoming is one thing that we take seriously. The week before we get to decorate halls, the next week which is the actual homecoming week, we get to dress up each day of the week.
Washington County Schools faculty and staff who are invested in their students. They are invested in their lives from elementary school through graduation and even college. They want the best for us and help in any way they can. Students are made to feel important and accepted. Our Career Technical center is an awesome way to get experience in career technical programs.
