As with attending any high school, a person is going to receive many positive and some negatives by the time they graduate. However, with our high school in particular, I believe the positives by far outweigh the negatives, and I would recommend attending this school to anyone, to show them what it's like to be a Whitewright Tiger! The only thing I would tell a person to remember, is that with all small schools, your drama becomes the whole student bodies drama. If a rumor is started, it spreads through the high school like a wild fire, until everyone has heard about it. This is only one con though in a wonderful school full of positives. Our school is filled with great students and teachers, each who would go out of their way to help anyone with anything. I am so blessed to be able to walk through those doors each and every day, and thank the Lord for giving me the opportunity to attend this inspiring place!

no, i would not. while it might have some positives, the school does very little to help financially when planning to leave. I will be awarded a $500 scholarship for band by the end of the year, but its because of the band boosters, not the school. the only scholarship our school personally awards, is always for athletics. we have very educationally inclined students in my class, who have gone above and beyond in their studies, but will not be recognized for it. our theater arts program, along with band, brought home the most trophies out of any other program, but no students from either will be financially supported for it. we have immense talent at our school that is never awarded, because it simply doesn't bring any money back to the school. Alongside the lack of recognition and financial help to those who are deserving, this school has developed a history of suicides. with the school being so small, you eventually know everyone, making each suicide a little more difficult to handle. since my fifth grade year i have lost five friends to suicide, the most recent happening this week. no one at our age should be exposed to something like that.
