Ware County High School has prepared me for college by providing rigorous and academically challenging education courses. They offer Advanced Placement classes as well as dual enrollment classes at an accredited institution. I have been a part of various school related activities. I participated in football, baseball, and the swim team. We advanced to the state playoffs in football and swimming, and we were awarded the opportunity to swim at Georgia Tech. I've also competed in Model UN, served in BETA and NHS, and have had a positive experience in a diverse and nurturing environment.

I love the environment that our teachers create! One thing I would like to see is more encouragement in finding out information on our own, as opposed to blindly carrying another’s perspective.
Great school full of caring educators! Wide variety of opportunities from dual enrollment courses to AP courses.
