While I was attending Whiddon Rogers, it wasn’t a bad experience. I had help with anything if I asked and the teachers were understanding and took extra time for me but there were still other things that the school could’ve worked on.

I appreciate what the school is trying to do, and it has helped me get back on track. But the reason why I put it so low is the kids. The students at this school are very callous and unruly and while the staff tries to bring order, whatever they try doesn't work. I feel bad for the teachers because they have to teach such disrespectful, rude students who don't care about anything but themselves.
i appreciate the fact that i was passed through this school to graduate. what is bad about this school is they don't prepare you to further your education. teachers are extremely unmotivated to teach and security hits on the students and let them skip class and hang out with them in the hallways. school always has a terribe stench of drugs coming from students. majority of teachers are extremely disorganized. students grades vary based off how much teachers like you versus their school work in this school. tons of drug dealers in school and gangbangers which make the school an unsafe environment.
