Washington County High School in brief can be described as an "it has its days" schools. Teachers are human, not immortal. They have frustration in their lives which often times will interfere with their teaching capabilities. Yes, they can be helpful and genuine. But other days they can be difficult to cope and reason with. The high school has been hiring new staff members off and on the past few years so not many are as accustom to the student body compared to the ones who've live in the community for a reasonable proportion of their lives.

Teaching styles varies dramatically among teachers. Teaching lesson scenarios: one teacher can't transfer her knowledge to her students in a concise manner; another simply makes us take notes and will properly give the class insight to the prime objective of the lesson without confusing the students too much; one will easily get off topic and talk up a storm but is an excellent teacher overall; one is inept at teaching in general; and lastly, one is too smart and talks over all of our heads.

Overall, the staff is friendly but not friends and they make that very clear.
There's a limited amount of clubs to participate in because the school is short on staff. My favorite club has been FBLA. The adviser is excellent at involving the chapter members with the community and school, and she's a fun person in general that I'm able to relate to. Other clubs at our school that deserve recognition are FFA and FCCLA which have had major success in the past ten years on the district, state, and nation levels.

As for after-school activities, there's nothing unless you're in sports. But most students have jobs in their spare time after school hours.
