West Stokes High School Reviews

I like that there are not really any bullies in this school, I have never personally seen anyone be bullied. I think the cafeteria is mediocre but I think the amount of time provided for lunch should be a little longer. Most teachers seem to actually care about the students they have. The guidance office aside from the FTCC person is pretty inept, they have been no help in figuring out how to apply for college or get scholarships. The equipment in the school is fairly new and the technology classes have brand new 3D printers and oculus rifts that are used for educational purposes, that is pretty cool. The sports are good but the head football coach named Upchurch is terrible and causes other kids to quit just because football cannot be first in everyone's lives. Overall I think it is a good school to attend.

West Stokes High School is a great school. The teachers are very knowledgeable, caring and in tune with the students needs. The sports programs are awesome. I played football all 4 years. The time I spent on the field with my coaches and teammates, created a family atmosphere. If you have young children and are looking for a great area to raise your family - Stokes County (King, NC) is ideal, the high school will be the best experience for your children.
Both the administration and the teachers here care to make genuine connections with all of their students. Small class sizes, especially in honors courses, make this possible. However, the lack of AP courses offered puts students at a slight disadvantage due to other schools have a multitude of these courses being offered to them from the start of their academic career.
