I've been in WCHS for my entire high school career and it's nothing to write home about. Like most of KY schools, the textbooks are outdated, but they have made a progressive leap towards technology-based recourses. The teachers are lovely at best, mediocre at worst. There is a heavy spotlight on sports, mainly Basketball and Football. There is an ajoining tech. school which, while small, is decent. There is a large agricultural elective selection, ranging from animal science to botany, and it's accompanied by an even larger FFA chapter. There is a blind-eye turned to those who are in desperate need of mental help, though, and blatant ignorance of mental/behavioral disorders from an alarming amount of staff. Seperation of church and state is very thin, it's practically a gradient. Otherwise, it's okay. Would choose homeschooling for my (nonexistant and theoretical) children if given the option, though.

Webster County High School is a great place to learn and experience a great education. This facility homes great teachers, many eager-to-learn students, and much more. While providing advanced placement classes, Webster County also provides a hand-full of dual credit courses which allows students to receive both high school and college credit at the same time. With all of the bad going on in the world, Webster County has decided to take the safety of the students into their own hands. This 2019-2020 school year, Webster County has added their very own Resource Officer. This Officer is a Police Official who stay all day at our school to protect our staff and students. Webster County High is a great place for all eager learners.
Attending webster county high school has been the most stressful thing in my entire life. This is largely to the lack of support from administration on issues such as bullying and mental issues. I often found myself avoiding school in whatever way possible and constantly begging my mom to take me to the doctors office for a note just so I could avoid it. There isnt much of a "guidance" office and you have to learn to trust a teacher over a counselor if you want to get any support whatsoever. Many times, students would leave class to talk to another teacher about their issues rather than go to the office for support. Overall the most stressful experience with little to show for it.
