WSHS is a great school. Sure we have our accomplishments ranging from national champion a cappella teams to our astounding numbers in the 30- plus ACT club, White Station has something amazing for every student. Yet, the filthy bathrooms, dirty rooms, and rodent American populations are horrible for the students, faculty, and staff's health. All in all, White Station is a great school with some dedicated teachers!

I love the diversity and the blend of cultures. There’s a great deal of issues that cause for change such as the learning environment, administration and resources. There’s a huge difference in how teachers treat their honors versus traditional classes. Where’s the encouragement? Traditional students should be given just as much respect encouragement and accountability as honor students. Setting the bar low keeps students down but setting the bar high causes students to rise to the occasion. Administration targets racial groups such as African Americans to suspend or expell over pettiness but looks past dug usage.
We have great students that contribute to WSHS reputation who are taken advantage of by demographics. A lot of teens wonder around helpless because stubborn counselors and administrators could could less about helping us apply for scholarships as they receive grants to build add ons to the landscape meanwhile it’s 40 degrees in the middle of November. .
White Station High School is considered to be one of the best High Schools in Memphis for academics, but the school is lacking in many other areas.
The teachers and classes--especially the honors classes-- are quite good and have certainly prepared me for college. Other aspects of the school, however, are lacking. The school is dirty--the bathrooms are downright appalling--, the administration is disorganized and does a bad job communicating , the counselors are never available when you need them, and the school does a poor job enforcing its policies. White Station's athletic's program is quite good, but it seems like more money goes to sports than to academics and building maintenance.
White Station is a highly diverse school with a strong school culture. White Station's academics are what make it a great school, but all of the school's shortcomings are, unfortunately, what drag it down.
