The teachers pick favorites a lot. As do the principle and assistant principle. I like that we don’t have a dress code and that we have so many different activities for the students to participate in. However, the school spends way too much money on the basket ball team. Every year the team gets a new set of jerseys, new shoes, they buy lights and sound systems to ensure that our team has a “grand” entrance. Meanwhile, the band that they so desperately want to have in the pep section has no funds. At all. The school never helps to get instruments or to repair the broken ones. The color guard has no place to practice because they will not give us the gym, because the basket ball team need to practice. I also think that some of the teachers are not fit for the bill. They simply don’t teach. Out of all three of the math teachers at WCHS only one of them has ever taught me anything. And I have had them all. Each for a year. And two of them were incapable of teaching me.

Wolfe County High School has great academics, teachers, safety, and sports. They focus on academics and sports. They always push for you to push yourself and make the most of your life. The diversity at the school is close to none with about 98% white. The school does not have much money so there is almost nothing besides the gym, cafeteria, and track.
I had the opportunity to meet new people, take CNA classes, and take college classes. Taking these classes opened up my doors to many choices and responsibilities, which, taught me very valuable life lessons.
