Overall, the White county school district is operated smoothly. They have great teachers, board members, and they are always there to answer any questions you have. The only thing I would change is how they handle certain situations. Due to this being a small town we haven’t had the proper training for certain events. Overall the White county school district is a great place!

In the White County School District, I liked the teachers and staff. The teachers were very interactive and loved their jobs, which showed through their teaching. I have learned many things from my teachers, not only the subjects they taught, but also life lessons and skills throughout the years too. The only thing that could change is testing strategies. There are too many tests and not enough time to learn all of the objectives. Many of the teachers and students are very stressed out because of this and the schools do not have the right technology needed. The White County School District is a very great place for students to learn!
I really like White County High School, I feel like they each each and every student with the equal respect and discipline. I believe that the teachers work really hard with students who don't understand things. also, i believe that the faculty and staff teach the students how to be good leaders and better life skills. White County High School, I feel, is also a very clean put-together school and that is a very important factor as well.
