Senior: It is unlike any other school. The school, nationally ranked, has won many awards for their student performance, fine arts performance, and overall school atmosphere. You get to be yourself and the teachers do too! Many of the teachers get to share their hidden talents with the school by performing with the students in shows and in music programs. This enable us to create close bonds with our teachers. Academically it is very challenging but rewarding in that it does get you prepared for college. I had no problems getting accepted to the colleges I applied to. It is rigorous but well worth the work. If I had to give it a negative I would say the only downside to this school is that it has no sports since it is a fine arts school. However, we do root for our neighboring high school teams and attend their athletic games. Overall, this school is fabulous! So glad I was lucky enough to attend.

Alum: Whitesboro High School is located in the small and rural town of Whitesboro, Texas. The small-town family unity is found at the heart of teachers, students, administrators, and supporters of Whitesboro ISD. WHS places great emphasis on student development and involvement, and makes a great effort to allow all students to participate in extracurricular activities; from academics and athletics to fine arts and STEM programs, Whitesboro High School is determined to allow students to thrive in as many areas as possible. As a recent alum of WHS, I had first-hand experience with award-winning UIL Academics, athletic, and Band programs, and without all the opportunities I had through these programs, I would not be the student and person I am today. I feel that not many graduates can say they are proud and still fully support their high school, and I am blessed to have gone to such an outstanding school.

Junior: Majority of this school is 100% throughout. Teachers are family and will do anything and everything for their students. We are an entire unit that works together, never against one another. Almost always, the students are on their best behavior 100% of the time and you will always find at least one person that makes you feel welcome. You'll always feel at home here.

Senior: I love being part of a small school. We have all the perks of a larger school while having small class sizes and the opportunity to get to know all your classmates. The small class size gives the teachers time to give each student personalized attention.
I have attended Pottsboro with most of my classmates since kindergarten. A few of my classmates even went to Pre-School together.
As with most Texas schools, Football is a huge part of our high school years. School spirit is over the top and does not just include the cheerleaders. The entire student section participates with signs, decorations, costumes and anything else the spirit leader presents to us.
