Volunteer High School is in a poor county. The administration within the school and county needs some improvement. Some clubs and organizations are known nationwide for their achievements! Our academics have some room for improvement. Our dual-enrolment classes have a very long list of options from two different schools Walter State, and East Tennessee State University. We have all of the regular sports and we are renovating almost all of our playing fields. Our food is average for a high school. We have several vending machines filled with goodies. Our principals are very friendly and greet all the students every morning. Overall our school is your average American high school.

My favorite thing about Volunteer High was the memories I made. Of course high school had it's drama but when you could get past that it was a great school. Friday nights was my favorite cheering on the boys under the Friday Night Lights. I was able to play basketball my freshman year and loved it. Unfortunately, I had to give it up due to complications.
Volunteer is one of two county high schools in Hawkins County, Tennessee. It is a generally pleasant school, boasting a kindhearted, student-driven staff; however, it lacks the funding and education opportunities to properly prepare students for higher education.
