White Station is a very diverse school with helpful teachers and staff. The school has something for everyone like JROTC,choir,LGBTQ,etc. There is hardly any conflicts between the students. The staff is wonderful and the are willing to lend a hand to the students who are in need. White Station also helps out the community very well with fundraisers and community service club. Most of the time White Station helps the Shelby County Humane Society during the lunch hours. Although the school is very helpful with academics and there is a place for everybody the one thing the school is horrible at is cleanliness. White Station's nick name is Rat Station,yes, Rat Station. Rats live in the ceiling. The bathrooms are something else, they are never clean plus there is no hot water! The safety at White Station has its flaws there are cameras in the hallway and outside of the school but half of them do not work.

White Station overall is truly a great school. It is one of the best schools in Memphis, Tennessee to be exact. The faculty and staff prepare the students for college very well! The environment is really nice and it feels like home. One of the best things about White Station is the diversity. We have students from every race and it's so interesting to see everyone coexist. I would recommend White Station to any and everyone!
White Station High School can be very educational and welcoming, but only for those that fit their idea of perfection. On the outside, White Station is one of the smartest and diverse schools in Memphis. However, when you actually come in, you will see that we are segregated in every way possible. Students are split up between "optional" and "traditional" and those lucky enough to be put into the optional category are taught to look down upon their "traditional" peers. Traditional students are barely, if ever, given the chance to prove themselves to a system who already believes they will fail. Many times in the classroom I hear students talking so badly about the traditional kids, without ever comparing the situations. Many students grew up in poorer neighborhoods and were never given a chance to have their brains blossom. White Station does not encourage growth but rather tells you that if you aren't "smart", you're nothing.
