Washington County High School taught me a great deal about myself and others. I made lifelong friends during my time at WCHS and I will always love my school. Although I love my school, there is room for improvement. The administration does not always enforce rules the way that they should. There are some teachers that do not do their job efficiently. However, I have had many amazing teachers that care about their students, and they taught me a lot about academics as well as life. All things considered, WCHS is a great place to experience high school and prepare for college.

Washington County Hight School is a good school, everyone respects each other, and the teachers try their hardest to get all the students the Education they need. Washington County High School funding are low and students don’t get the materials they need to get the education or experience they need before going to college I hope to see this change soon.
I love how all the teachers are engaged with the students. They really care about the students' future. I think they could improve their teaching methods. Some of their methods are hard to keep up with, and hard to understand.
