I love how how supportive the school is of their arts program. As a member of numerous programs, including being the drum major of the marching band, I am proud say I’m involved in the cultural arts programs at White Oak. Something that would benefit the student at white oak, is looking for a solution to the amount of time it takes for student to grab their lunch from the cafeteria and still be able to eat. The amount of lunch time given to the students sounds fine; however when you take into consideration the length of the lunch line and how many of those student are coming from the opposite side of campus, it leaves very little time for my fellow classmates to get their lunch and eat all of it.

White Oak High School is a school where students can either have a great experience or a terrible experience. There seems to be a mix of amazing teachers and people who don't deserve the title of teacher. If a teacher isn't working out for a student then they have to bully the guidance counselors to allow them to change classes. Although generally speaking most students have have a better experience after they switch. The principal, Dr. Barnes is amazing, he is willing to do anything to ensure that students at White Oak are successful. There is a variety of clubs and sports at White Oak for students to participate in, they even recently added a girls lacrosse team. White Oak is a school where students are pushed to succeed despite the odds.
White Oak High School is a very interesting school. First impressions of the school shows that it has promise. However, our school is currently under damages due to Hurricane Florence. I believe that the school contains a student and teacher base that definitely has the potential to change. I also believe that the school could be one of the best great, but until changes to student behavior and work ethic the school will remain average.
