West Rusk High School Reviews
As a student from West Rusk, I hope to see that it eventually grows into a better school. While we are starting to get more developed with some new technology, our school budget is horrible. This depletes us from reaching our full potential! I’ve been a student here since the second grade, and it’s always remained a small school. It’s been somewhat beneficial since I recognize everyone.
If I would recommend any school to someone it would definitely be West Rusk. Our principal and assistant principal truly care about our well being and do all that they can to help give us a better environment to learn in. Some of our students couldn't afford to eat lunch and didn't qualify for our "free lunch" program so our principal started a new program to where everyone has a free lunch now so no one goes through the school day without being fed. Our teachers try their absolute best to make sure we understand the subject before moving on and gain relationship with their students. The only thing I would really change is the condition of our bathrooms and water fountains, they just need a little makeover. West Rusk is the best school around this area and I will always stand by that statement.
West Rusk High School is a good high school to attend although the student population is low; there is an advantage to that. Many of the students are well behaved and help each other out. The school staff is very helpful in helping their students when it comes to making decisions about their future. One thing that could change is the time the students have to eat for lunch. The students that are not in athletics are released for early lunch at 12:30, but the students in athletics are released at 12:40. Most of the athletic students do not have enough time to eat before the lunch period is over, so I would suggest setting the time for lunch for everybody to 12:30. Changing the lunch time will not only benefit the athletic body, but it will be beneficial to all students making sure they get enough time to eat their food.
