William Blount High School has excellent academics with a variety of advanced placement and dual enrollment classes available. They offer work-based learning in a career technical building. The diversity is lacking within the student population, though a few distinct groups exist. The college readiness a William Blount graduate has is average. The building itself is dated and needs repairs desperately in order to provide a safe environment for its excellent clubs. The food, a combination of cafeteria eating and the school's own restaurant contrast greatly.

Many students and parents have issues regarding William Blount's education, building, sports, teachers, and others factors. They negatively view the school, but I do not understand why. I love my school. The teachers are spectacular; I feel extremely prepared to go onto a four-year University after taking a few of the many honors and AP classes at William Blount. My experiences at the school outside of education have also been greatly influential in my life. I have been a part of Soccer as captain and HOSA as Vice President, and these two leadership roles have helped me become a better overall in other aspects of my life. William Blount has provided me with a tremendous education and a confidence boost.
William Blount is a very nice school. The teachers are mostly willing to help at any moment in time. The principals and guidance counselers are always looking for ways to improve the academics and the students future life. Although, there are a few flaws. Some teachers just do not care. They are only there for the money, and those teachers usually don't enforce rules. William Blount is a county school, so the school does not receive much money. It isn't the healthiest of schools, but the staff makes due. The athletics all comepete in the hardest divisions. Overall the school is great! Every school has flaws, but William Blount prepares the students for the future.
