White Knoll high school has an amazing amount of pride when it comes to school spirit. Sure, we may compare ourselves to other schools that have more money than us, or that are way bigger and beautiful but you should see how fast those bleachers fill on Friday night for the varsity football game while the seniors and juniors scream for the timberwolves! The overall experience during a normal school day isn't very exciting, and we might have some issues with cliques but it's all normal for a regular high school. I wouldn't say White Knoll isn't anything special, but it all depends on how involved you are, when it comes to sports, academics, or the arts. One's experience at White Knoll is what you make it to be.

I loved the teachers at White Knoll. They kept the classes interesting and helped anyway they could. I also thought our principle was the coolest. I remember he would give out high fives in the hallway and if you introduced yourself he would remember. Our football team was nice and weren’t your average “high school jocks.” If I could change something about White Knoll, it would be there rules on fighting. I wish there would have been a bigger punishment so there would have been less fights and bullying. Other than that, I believe White Knoll is a great school. White Knoll High, we love you!
I am a senior and though I am VERY ready to graduate I have loved my time at White Knoll High School. I was able to find support in my teachers and in my peers wherever I looked. If I was having an off day I always had at least one teacher ask to talk about what was bothering me. My guidance counselor has been amazing! I email her all the time with updates on my after high school plans and she is always enthusiastic about helping me achieve. Of course WKHS isn't perfect, I have heard a few stories of prejudices of teachers leaking their way into their classrooms but I myself have never experienced it. Overall WKHS is a great school and I consider myself lucky to have been involved in its community.
