What i like about my high school is that i have made so many great friends and i have teachers that are like wonderful parents to me! I like how everyone there has a mission to help students weather us, being students, dont see it yet! Im not saying my school is perfect because no school is, every school had their ups and downs. I feel like my school could do things that will let the students see that the staff is truely there for us and show that if we ever need anything they can help! They show that with us having many opportunities to help get into college, like college fair, but they need to show is that we arent just rates of how many of us get into college but how many lives they have truely touch during impotant years of our lives.

Overall this school is very student based, and puts students' opinions and thoughts first. The administration is very controlling and unfair on topics like dress code, lunch food, and scheduling. The facilities are clean and new, and the district makes a constant effort to update technology and resources. There is a wide range of academics and helps cover many different career pathways. College preparation is also a major interest in this school, and the counselling department is excellent at assisting students.
I went through WHS all four years of high school. I graduated in the top 10 of my class. The main aspect that WHS could focus on is the AP readiness as well as the SAT/ACT prep. These tests really matter and I felt that I had to study most of it on my own rather than being taught the material. Additionally, the path to applying to college was mainly autonomous. Definitely have a plan and work on it yourself-- don't rely on the counseling staff to walk you through the process.
