My experience at WHS was pretty great! I played basketball 3 out of the 4 years I was there and made great memories. I joined this club called “Interact” and it’s all about “Sevice above self” my freshman year. Started off we were a small group maybe 5-10, but by the time senior year came we were a group of 50+ making an impact on my school and it was truly heartwarming. If I was given the opportunity to start all my years of high school over, I wouldn’t because everything that I went through in high school made me the woman I am. Strong, independent, and determined!

I just moved to Willis Texas my senior year and was zoned for WIllis High School. I was really nervous about making friends but everyone was so welcoming and nice. It is also a completely different dynamic than my previous high school and I love it! The kids are awesome, there is tons of school spirit, and the teachers seem to be really "in-it-for-the-kids". 10/10 recommend!
My experience at Willis High School has been a roller coaster of ups and downs, but like everyone that is just the normality of being a high schooler. I like how WHS allows there students to use their phones/ technology because now of days everything is done online due to modernizing times. One thing I would change about the school is for the teachers to allow their students to receive extra credit and for their to be an entire free period that the students could have either to get homework done or go to a teacher for help.
