I have been to White Knoll all of my life and Ive cherished every year preciously. I love how the school gives students great opportunities whether if its hands on learning, or enlightening students on upcoming events. I also love the unique falcuty members, which makes the school even better. The teachers are absolutely amazing! They make sure that the academic concept is met by every student, even if it takes one on one learning tutoring. Although White Knoll is an sterling school, I wish some things could change. For instance, I certainly wish that the school could abate the dress code for girls. At White Knoll, the dress code policy is specifically directed towards female clothing. Personally, the rule itself is not fair, and I hope that it's disposed in the future.

White Knoll isn't a bad school. It really could be worse. I have had a humiliating experience with the chorus teacher and a terrible PE class. I have experienced racism and ignorance in this school, especially as a person of color. If you manage to get a gem of a teacher, hold on to them! Some teachers will assist you one on one, but prefer you to go to the help labs. I feel as if the guidance counselors really do want you to succeed and be ready. Some people I know are in the band, and it takes up lots of time and doesn't let them focus on their academics.
My experience at White Knoll High School has been fantastic. The teachers genuinely care for their students and work tirelessly to create connections with each child. The administrative staff are extremely attentive and listen to the student's concerns. The guidance department has done an extraordinary job to prepare students for the next chapter of life. Lastly, the student body is very close knit, especially in times of hardship. Through my time at White Knoll, we have lost a few students. In those times of mourning, the student body has pulled together to comfort one another. Prayers have been led, songs have been sung, tributes have been made. There has been a special bond amongst the students in this high school. Although the amenities are not as new as some of the neighboring schools, every staff member at White Knoll works to keep the school in great condition and strives to make everlasting impressions on the future generation of students.
