Wise County Public Schools Reviews

Wise County Public Schools has always had top notch teachers that care about their students. Academically speaking, I feel like I have an advantage on other students that might have not got the chance to go to a school in Wise County. The only thing Wise County might be lacking is a strong fan base . However, the culture of the schools throughout the Wise County area is the best you will find anywhere. Wise County Public Schools will give you all the opportunities you might have in a big city or larger county with more funding.

There was amazing opportunities but there were times when the staff would pick favorites. The school and district was amazing!
I like wise county public schools because they reward and encourage students to improve. However, I do not like that some teachers do not teach very well or just chose to not teach at all. I had an amatomy teacher and she did not want to teach that class and it wasn’t an SOL class so she just didn’t teach us much. It was bad for me because I want to be a nurse or doctor someday and I really wanted to learn about anatomy.
