Whitesboro High School Reviews

Whitesboro High School is located in the small and rural town of Whitesboro, Texas. The small-town family unity is found at the heart of teachers, students, administrators, and supporters of Whitesboro ISD. WHS places great emphasis on student development and involvement, and makes a great effort to allow all students to participate in extracurricular activities; from academics and athletics to fine arts and STEM programs, Whitesboro High School is determined to allow students to thrive in as many areas as possible. As a recent alum of WHS, I had first-hand experience with award-winning UIL Academics, athletic, and Band programs, and without all the opportunities I had through these programs, I would not be the student and person I am today. I feel that not many graduates can say they are proud and still fully support their high school, and I am blessed to have gone to such an outstanding school.

I liked that many of the teachers went out of their way to make sure you were succeeding. I liked that the school was smaller and more like a community. What I would like to see change is academics being paid more attention to than the football program. Sports are great, but so are good grades. There was also a lot of coaches as teachers that probably weren't really qualified to teach. Another thing is that the rich or influential kids had a greater chance at making it into sports teams or Honors classes just because of who their parents were.
Whitesboro Highschool is a good school in general. They are always helping you and encouraging you to get better. They are always helping you with your grades to make sure you are passing your classes. The principals, teachers and administrators are great also.
