I love how much the teachers care. From being concerned about your education to just being there when you need a friend– I know I can always count on my WSHS teachers. The small town that the school is in allows me to build close relationships with people throughout my community and school super easily. The administration is open-minded and truly cares about what their students have to say. I have loved attending Ware Shoals High School, and I'd be happy to recommend it to anyone.

I love the size of my school. Being in a small school means that everybody knows everybody, which can make the environment a lot more pleasant. Faculty and staff could improve on communication throughout the school year because sometimes word doesn't get out about certain events during the year. Overall though, it is a very good school.
Ware Shoals High School has been my home for 4 years now. I have loved every moment spent at this school, no matter how stressful. The teachers and other faculty members are very nice and helpful and always have time for the students. I love Ware Shoals High School and being a Hornet!
