Willits High School Reviews

I think that the school could offer better college readiness resources in the form of college counselors. Speaking as a current college student who has graduated from Willits High School, I think that if students had counselors they could talk to regarding applying to college and a course of action they would be much better off by the time they were ready to leave. The school is very small, and academically they offer a decent amount of courses for the size of the school. But I think that since the courses are limited there should be a stronger academic system and higher level at which students are learning so that they are prepared for college. I think that overall, high school should be less focused on pushing kids through and more focused on giving students a meaningful education that they want to expand on.

I really liked most of the teachers, if you ask for help they are there for you. For example, our Algebra 2's teacher is there almost everyday after school if you want to go visit for questions on math you have. The counselors right now have a student check-in form online where you answer some questions and they call you back. So they are available.
It is the most average high school maybe even below average. If you have the opportunity to go somewhere else go there. Some of the teachers are really great and you can learn a lot from them but that does not make up for how badly the school is. It is a small school but it feels like no one cares about anyone else.
